Shibuya Pedestrian Scramble

Shibuya Pedestrian Scramble

While you are in the Shibuya area, it is worth making a short stop at the Shibuya Pedestrian Scramble. This busy street crossing is the most famous of its kind – it stands right outside of Shibuya Station, allowing those on foot to cross from any angle or direction, and all at once. When the traffic lights change to red the crowds surge forward, and the mingled crowds of businessmen to fashionistas make for quite a sight! The scramble is also well-located to jump off to other sites, including the famous statue of Hachiko at Shibuya Station, or the prominent Shibuya 109 building, where over 100 shops cater to the sharpest dressers. If you’re feeling hungry, there is also the Tokyu Food Show in the basement of Shibuya station to explore, offering counter after counter of fried fish, fresh vegetables, saucy noodles, and tempting sweets.
