Shibuya Pedestrian Scramble, Shibuya

(4.1/5 based on 3,800+ reviews on the web)
Take part in one of the most iconic scenes in Tokyo by joining the crowds through Shibuya Pedestrian Scramble, an enormous bustling intersection outside Shibuya station. Flanked by illuminated skyscrapers on each corner, the intersection buzzes with organized chaos as pedestrians cross in every direction at once. Watch the hypnotic movement of the crowds from afar--ideally from the windows of one of the surrounding buildings--before diving into the packed but orderly masses yourself. Make Shibuya Pedestrian Scramble part of your personalized Tokyo itinerary using our Tokyo trip generator.

  • This is a multi way pedestrian crossing - not all its cracked up to be...We tried to view from suggested Starbucks, but there was zero customer movement and couldn't get anyway close to seeing the int...  more »
  • Not just for the crossing, but the whole area. It's alive and vibrant and a total assault on your senses. The micro bars serving typical Japanese fare are superb and worth visiting as well.  more »
  • 沒來這邊之前,總覺得新宿人應該是超多。來到這邊只能用爆多來形容。電視牆跟建物也是比新宿更讓人震撼。想要找那隻忠狗,還要花一點時間,人實在太多。散步到原宿也不遠。  more »

  • You really can't say you've been to Tokyo if you haven't experienced the craziness at this intersection! Some times are busier than others, but it's a great experience either way. You don't even have to cross to get the whole vibe. You could easily take the train into Shibuya Station, head outside for a little bit to watch the action and go along your merry way. No need to spend a lot of time here if you don't like big crowds.
  • Shibuya Crossing. It's worth it to visit... once. There are tons of places to shop and little hole in the wall sushi spots to try. You could spend a week exploring within a 1,000m radius of here.
  • Made me wander for half hour!!!! Wrong location!!!!
  • this is not the correct location, it's a few streets to the west
  • Not there
