Shibuya Crossing, Shibuya

4.0
#8 of 4,790 in Things to do in Tokyo
Take part in one of the most iconic scenes in Tokyo by joining the crowds through Shibuya Crossing, 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.

  • Amazing how many thousands of people cross Shibuya Crossing in a single second all at the same time. People walking very fast and so orderly. Worthwhile to go to and check. Don’t forget Hachi’s...  more »
  • We were taken here at a peak time of 6.30pm when masses of people spilled over and across this amazing scramble crossing. You can get a free view over the crossing from the station.  more »

  • A must go destination in Tokyo. It's huge, it's crowded and great for iconic pictures or you can just enjoy the view from one of the bars/cafes in the surrounding buildings. One can also enjoy tons of photographers in weird postures trying to get cool & unique shots. After walking over the crossing for 10 times, take a stroll through the adjacent streets for more neon light, bars and shops.
  • It is a place that you must visit because it is one of the most famous crossings in the world it is impressive to see all the people, I loved that experience. I would have liked to bring some drones to better capture the crossing. but from Starbucks you can appreciate it well.
