Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
There’s nothing quite like the utterly frenzied yet organised chaos of Shibuya Crossing, one of the top attractions in Tokyo. Its nickname, the ‘Scramble’, perfectly sums up the nature of this jumbled intersection that sees thousands of people pass through it every day.
The crossing has long been a trademark of the district alongside Hachiko, and the junction’s foot traffic is only increasing. For some, navigating the crossing can be disorienting: when the light changes, it feels as though there are swarms of people coming towards you from all directions. For others, it's just another part of the daily commute. Whether you're there to capture the action with a camera in hand or just in the area waiting for friends, trust us — the view is better from up here.
