Shibuya is known for its busy shopping district and bustling nightlife.
Shibuya Scramble Crossing is the world’s busiest pedestrian crossing. An estimated 2,500 people cross each time the lights change.
Shibuya Station is one of Tōkyō’s busiest railway stations. In front of the station is Hachikō-mae Square which is named after Hachikō; a Japanese Akita dog remembered for his remarkable loyalty to his owner, Hidesaburō Ueno, for whom he continued to wait for over nine years following Ueno’s death. A memorial statue of Hachikō sits in the square and is used as a popular meeting place. Opposite the statue is a Tourist Information centre.
