Getting Lost in the Organized Chaos of Shibuya Crossing in Tokyo
Located near the Hachiko exit of busy Shibuya Station, this massive crossing in Tokyo's Shibuya Ward is a landmark in itself. Imposing TV screens overtake the intersection from above, where swarms of people cross from every direction possible. It's where Tokyo's youth, nightlife, fashion, and business collide, and a perfect location to get lost among millions of swift-moving people. Try wandering aimlessly like Charlotte in Lost in Translation, head to the top floor of a building for an birds-eye aerial snapshot, or grab a latte at the Starbucks cafe overlooking the crossing. This urban madness feels rather natural, orderly, and quintessentially Japanese.
