Shibuya is the trendiest area for young people in Shibuya and there are a ton of restaurants and shopping areas.
And to get there, you need to cross the road at the popular Shibuya crossing (or Shibuya Scramble Crossing).
And if you are going to Tokyo, it should be on your list of places to visit. And if you are visiting Shibuya and visiting the shops, no doubt, you’re going to have to cross it anyway.
There is nothing magnificent about crossing the street, but its the feeling of seeing so many people crossing, it’s a sight to be seen, may it be overhead or just crossing it yourself. We see it in movies, anime, etc., it’s one of the most memorable things that tend to stick in your head if you love the concrete jungle of Tokyo.
And for many people who vacationed in Tokyo, it’s one of the reasons why the Shibuya Crossing livestream channel on YouTube is quite popular, because people love the area so much.
But again, it’s not about the gratification but for fans of Japanese pop culture, it’s more or less the feeling that you have arrived in the pop culture mecha, Shibuya.
