About Shibuya, Japan

Historic Shibuya was the site of a castle that the Shibuya resided in throughout the Edo period.

In 1886, the Yamanote Line was opened, and it transformed the town for the better. It’s now one of the most famous railway terminals in southwest Tokyo.

In the 1980s, Shibuya became a go-to destination for young people from around the world. And, it's still popular today!

With the Shibuya 109 shopping center and several famous stores, it’s a shoppers’ paradise. But, it’s the exciting nightlife that makes people come back for more.

This city is famous for Shibuya Crossing. It’s a scramble crossing that stops vehicles coming from all directions at the same time. This allows a huge number of pedestrians to take over the intersection all at once.

If you get separated from your friends, the a statue of Hachiko (a dog) is an ideal meeting place. But it’s likely to be rather crowded!

You may recognize the crossing. It’s been in quite a few films, including ‘Lost in Translation’, ‘The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift’ and ‘Resident Evil’ to name but a few.

What to do in Shibuya, Japan

Though mostly known for its shopping, Shibuya has a lot more to offer visitors.

Go to the Bunkamura museum and see the constantly changing displays – you'll never see the same thing twice!

Also, see the Konno Hachimangu shrine. The site is believed to have been the home of the Shibuya family themselves.

If you fancy drinks with a view, head up to the 40th floor of Bello Visto and see the entire Shinjuku skyline. But, you’ll need to book in advance for the best seats.

There are lots of food challenges around the city. Try to eat your weight in rice, pudding or even bread! If you manage it, you'll be a hero and probably put up on the wall of fame.

Once you've done that, you'll want to walk it off. So, why not go for a wander round Yoyogi Park? This beautiful green space is full of blossoming flowers, and there's the Meiji Jingu shrine there too.
