People, people and more people. My personal definition of Shibuya, a ward in Tokyo.
Known to be filled with lots of young people, Shibuya is a very crowded city from morning to night. Also popular for the "Hachi-ko" dog by the station, and the "Scramble crossing" (in the pic above). Both of these iconic locations are right by Shibuya station exits.
If you like to shop or want to take a look at the young trendy clothes in Tokyo, you might want to stop at 109, a popular shopping mall full of different types of styles & wardrobes. You'll experience a very different mall atmosphere there.
There are lots and lots of restaurants, cafes, bars and fast foods in Shibuya, like any other ward in Tokyo. Quite dense though. I highly recommend the standing sushi bar in the "Center-gai", a.k.a Center Street. Super casual, affordable but delicious & worthy.
Another recommendation is LoFT, a shop spanning 7 floors with anything from beauty goods, travel goods to pens and paper. If you are looking for gifts and good quality goodies, you must visit!
If you go to Shibuya, be prepared to walk! Through the alleys, through the streets....You'll forget the time passing by since there is so much to experience and look at! If you want to see all the lights, young vibe and be surrounded by lots and lots of people, this is a place you must visit :)
Let me know if you have any recommendations in Shibuya!
