A must see in Tokyo. Especially in the evenings and on weekends. The traffic lights open for pedestrians in both directions at the same time making this an interesting photo shoot or time lapse video from the 2/3rd floors of nearby buildings.

We laid eyes on this attraction during lunchtime so it wasn't all that busy. I got a decent view of it at Mag's Park, which is on the rooftop of a nearby building (there's a huge sign outside but Google it if you need to)....More

Even though it’s a site to see. The crowds are like a sea of people and we went on a Monday evening. It is still efficient as much of Japan is. Streets are clean it feels safe for foreigners and even though it’s a ton...More

We actually were thinking ‘Are we in the Wii Fit Scenario?’ When we were there as it did seem to be just like that! It doesn’t seem real with so many people crossing and of course because you are in Japan, everyone waits for the...More

This is a must do experience when in Tokyo. The famous Tokyo pedestrian crossing has broken records in the number of people crossing at any one time. There are something like 5 or 7 crossings which all converge at the same intersection. All the traffic...More

Thousends of people passing by. Every day. Every minute. It is a must-seen in Tokyo, I think. One of the best views you will have on second floor of Starbucks.

Seems simple enough but very complicated at the same time! It was fun crossing with the multitudes of people on an extremely busy and popular intersection! Hachico was nearby as well!

It’s an experience! Never seen so much people. It is an organized chaos. Lots of restaurants around, store to browse, people watching.

Shibuya is a major player when it comes to commercial and business buildings, I'm sure you can find almost anything you like. If you go to Shibuya, and you come in by train, there are two train stations, Shibuya and Shinjuku. It's worth to take...More

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.

It’s the center of Shibuya, so there’s everything to do here. I mean, the scrabble itself is a pedestrian crossing, but the Tokyu Food Show is underneath it, the Shibuya yokocho (along with hundreds of other restaurants) is... More

Not sure about restaurants but there is a big Starbucks on one corner. The window seats were very busy but I think you’d have a decent view.
