Shibuya: A mecca for youth culture, shopping, and entertainment, Shibuya Station’s surrounding commercial area is a fashionista haven, home to numerous department stores, boutiques, and entertainment hubs. Shibuya’s most famous meeting point is the famous Hachiko Statue, a memorial to one of the most loyal hounds in history. And, of course, you can’t miss the Shibuya Crossing. For two minutes at a time, the world’s most intense pedestrian crossing comes to life. A heavily trafficked street photography spot, the crossing has become symbolic of Tokyo, featured in films like Lost in Translation and Tokyo Drift. Another point of interest is Bunkamura which literally means “culture village,” consisting of concert halls, a theater, a cinema, and a museum that features changing exhibits.
