Shibuya Crossing, Shibuya

4.0
#8 of 4,791 in Things to do in Tokyo
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.
