Shibuya – Tokyo
Going on a trip to Tokyo? You’re sure to end up in Shibuya. The sprawling capital’s shopping and business center is a very popular place with tourists and locals, a bustling place that has become the best area of Tokyo for shopping and entertainment. The two busiest stations on the planet, Shibuya and Shinjuku, are in a chaotic location, but if you move forward, you’ll quickly find your place.
The famous Hachiko Crossing is a typical example: 3000 pedestrians pass through it during rush hour. It’s also an amazing show at night. The Maid Cafe is a must-see for the most eccentric Japanese experience. Fans of manga and anime will love the atmosphere. Eat delicious sushi at Genki Sushi and take a walk in Yoyogi Park.
With its countless shops, restaurants and nightclubs, Shibuya never sleeps, a colorful place that can tire tourists. But there are also places where you can spend some time in peace. When all this becomes too difficult, head to the Meiji Shrine, located in a beautiful 170-hectare forest, to recharge your batteries before taking over the bustling streets of the city.
