Shibuya Crossing

Shibuya Crossing, Tokyo. What can be a more unconventional sightseeing spot than a pedestrian crossing? Not to mention we’ve been to see it twice!

Shibuya is one of the main commercial areas of Tokyo. It houses two of the world’s busiest railway stations – Shinjuku Station (busiest in the world – handles on average, over 3.6 million passengers a day) and Shibuya Station (fourth busiest in the world – handles on average, over 2.4 million passengers a day). Shibuya Station is where one needs to alight to see the Shibuya Crossing, just outside the Hachiko entrance/exit gate.
