Shibuya is a very popular town for younger generations, and this crossing is one of the biggest scramble crossings in the world. It is a famous spot that appears in many movies.
The Shibuya Scramble Crossing is right in front of the Hachiko (a statue of a dog) Exit of the Shibuya Station. Many shopping centers specialized in fashion-related products stand in a row in Shibuya, which is known to be very popular among young people. Sometimes, as many as 3,000 people are crossing during a green light, and its traffic volume is one of the highest in the world. In order to see a magnificent view of so many people crossing from every direction, this place has become more popular as a sightseeing spot these days. As many foreign movies and music videos of famous artists are filmed at this place, the crossing became well-known in the world. If you join in the crossing crowd, you may feel as if you are blending into a movie scene. On a day of a special event like Halloween, the crossing becomes even busier than usual.
