Shibuya crossing

Crossing the streets in front of the Shibuya Station is an experience on its own. Approximately 2.500 people are crossing the road here at a time which justifies the frequent comparison to New York's Times Square and London's Piccadilly Circus intersection. Many street artists gather in this area to show their performances and moreover, can you find the statue of the famous and loyal dog Hachikō between station and intersection.

Do & See

Whether you’re a techno buff or want to take in some more traditional Japanese sights and sounds, this city can offer it all. Visit splendid Shinto shrines or indulge in some shopping on Tokyo’s equivalent of Fifth Avenue.
