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.

    Even if the intersection of Shibuya is part of visits required to do in Tokyo, we stayed a little on our hunger. We thought bigger and more impressive (we had Time Square NYC in the head). Nevertheless, it is a must to do without hesitation and the area is very young and very dynamic.

    Shibuya is enormous fun if you like shopping. Cricket fast food chain and clothing brands. The crossroads is best viewed from the second floor of the Starbucks! in the evening more fun to visit than during the day. In the weekend even more fun because of all the Japanese in starting clothing.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
