We all know the famous scramble crossing of Shibuya and I’m sure you will visit at least a few times on a trip to Tokyo.

Coming out at the Hachiko entrance this is a popular meeting point.

It’s just a wonderful place to people watch. Why not if you can get a seat sit at the window of the Starbucks over looking the crossing and watch Tokyo go by at a fast pace while you sip on a matcha latte.

Just next to the crossing is the famous 109 women’s ware department store with level upon level of clothes . If you love fashion you will love 109! There is a small 109 men’s on the opposite side of the crossing .

As I mentioned in the Halloween page another lovely shop I would recommend here is Loft. With floors of stationary and lovely kitchenware

Walking from the crossing and under the bridge towards near the Tokyu Department store on Meiji Dori is the unusual building of the Hikarie shopping complex. This is relatively new being completed in 2012.
