With its concentration of commercial facilities and transportation systems, Shibuya bustles with people on a daily basis. The scramble crossing in front of JR Shibuya Station, located in the center of the city, sees as many as 500,000 people a day, or as many as 3,000 people crossing at a single green light. The sight of so many people crossing the pedestrian crossing without bumping into each other has become a symbolic scene of the metropolis of Tokyo, and the crossing has become an unmissable tourist spot.
Shibuya is one of the most popular downtown areas in Japan. Centered around the famous scramble crossing where many people pass by, department stores and fashion buildings stand side by side. The town of Shibuya, which is undergoing large-scale redevelopment and changing its appearance on a daily basis, offers visitors a trip to countless unique spots, from old-fashioned museums to state-of-the-art complexes.
