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.

Le carrefour le plus fréquenté au monde. Il paraissait plus grand à la télévision. Tout ce monde qui traverse en même temps est impressionnant. Il y a la statue du chien Hachito juste à côté. more »The busiest crossroads in the world. He looked taller on television. All this world that crosses at the same time is impressive. There's the statue of the dog Hachito next door.
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.
