Shibuya Pedestrian Scramble, Shibuya

3.9
#10 of 4,250 in Things to do in Tokyo
Take part in one of the most iconic scenes in Tokyo by joining the crowds through Shibuya Pedestrian Scramble, 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.

  • The crossroads in front of Shibuya Valley is an important landmark in Tokyo, and is often filmed on TV or movie. When people pass the intersection, they can take photos at the nearby restaurant.

  • You have to have time geseheb. Go best in the otakyu building and look of the transition on the crossing. Really, as soon as it turns green the mass move to each other a spectacle, when it turns red, the intersection suddenly empties
