One of the most famous spots in Tokyo, the ever-busy Shibuya Crossing has a life of its own. Also known as the Shibuya Scramble, you’ll soon see how it earned that particular nickname. As the busiest intersection in Japan, if not the world, you can enjoy walking across with the salarymen, photographing it or just watching the world go by. We have a guide on getting the best shots and for the top things to do nearby so you can make the most of your visit. The busiest time is usually evening at around 6-7pm and the neon signs certainly look best at that time too!
Pro tip: Make new friends and experience the local nightlife on a bar-hopping tour of Shibuya.
