Shibuya Scramble Crossing

Travel Guide - Shibuya Scramble Crossing

Information

Shibuya Scramble Crossing is one of the most famous and busiest crossings in Japan, or even in the world today.
The crossing is often featured in TV shows and movies, such as Lost in Translation, The Fast and the Furious, and Resident Evil (Known as "Biohazard" in Japan).
Also, it is said that the Oxford Circus in London was inspired by the Shibuya's crossing.

The crossing is located in front of Shibuya Station which handles more than two million passengers a day, and about 3,000 people cross the intersection simultaneously at the peak.
The crossing is also famous as a gathering spot in special occasions, such as Halloween and FIFA World Cup, and this place becomes even more crowded at those times.

If you want to see the bustling crossing from above, Estacion Cafe in Shibuya Excel Hotel Tokyu, Oriental Dining LOHB in Shibuya-Ekimae Building, or Starbucks Coffee SHIBUYA TSUTAYA in QFRONT are good view points.

Access / Public Transport

  • Short walk from JR Shibuya Station
