Shibuya Pedestrian Scramble, Shibuya

3.9
#10 of 3,862 in Things to do in Tokyo
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.

  • There are multiple lines at the intersection, and every pedestrian passes the light to the line, the situation of the pedestrians is very interesting and a good thing for free experience

  • It is very attractive if you exit the metro from the Hachiko Exit (the dog) you are facing the famous crossing. From local Sturbacks in the 1st floor is seen with a panoramic view of the same.

  • I think it's the most famous crossroads not only in Japan but in the world. There's always a huge amount of people waiting when a green light will illuminate. Very near the statue of Hachiko. Near a bunch of cafes and shops.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
