About

渋谷の街の特長

渋谷といえば東京で最も若者の熱気にあふれた街のひとつである。流行の集まる街で、数多くのお店やカフェが立ち並んでいる。渋谷駅を出て、交差点を渡りまっすぐ進むと、渋谷の街の中心に商店街がある。ゲームセンターやファストフードをはじめとする飲食店、大型CDショップなどのお店が立ち並ぶ商店街でかつては渋谷センター街と呼ばれていた。(2011年よりバスケットボールストリートと改名。一時期若者の集まる渋谷は、治安が乱れ、そのイメージの悪さを払拭するために改名された)

新しいランドマーク・ヒカリエ

渋谷は今もなお進化を続けており、駅での乗り換えを充実させたり、商業施設を新たに設立するなど2027年を目標に渋谷駅はまだまだ開発途中である。2012年に新しく出来た商業施設、ヒカリエもその開発の1つで、ここには話題のショップが多く集まっている。200店舗以上あるお店の7割は渋谷発上陸で、レストランフロアに関しても渋谷エリア最大規模である。さらにミュージカルを上演している劇場とアートスペースも併設。日本の最新流行を知るにはうってつけの場所だろう。

スクランブル交差点

海外でも映画化したHachiのモデルである犬の銅像は、若者の待ち合わせ場所として利用されている。最近注目されているのは渋谷駅目の前にある大きなスクランブル交差点だ。物凄い数の人たちがぶつかりあうことなく交差点を歩く姿をカメラに写そうと、周りの2階以上のカフェなどには多くの観光客が集まる。渋谷についたらまずはスクランブル交差点を渡ってみるとよいだろう。

渋谷から原宿、表参道へ

渋谷からは原宿、表参道といった若者に人気の街へのアクセスが大変よい。渋谷から歩いて、原宿や表参道へとでれば、今の日本の若者の姿をかいまみることができるだろう。また外国人観光客に人気の原宿では、コスプレ衣装が豊富にある。渋谷はハロウィーンには多くのコスプレ客でにぎわう。海外のハロウィーンとは違う、大人たちの楽しめるハロウィーンイベントとして最近注目を浴びている渋谷で、コスプレの文化を体験してみてもよいだろう。なお、渋谷では無料のWi-fiが比較的どこでもつながる。また、外国人向けの案内所や英語の標識なども多く、日本語がわからなくても苦労しない。

Exciting and lively
You basically can do pretty much everything in Shibuya. Shop, eat, karaoke, bar, and walking around Shibuya with no purpose can be interesting. So many people.

Shopping and Cafe
Shibuya is the shopping area. There are many shopping stores like Shibuya 109, ZARA, H&M and etc... You can enjoy cafes also. First, I always go shopping and when I feel like tired, I go to cafe. Shibuya is a really popular place, so weekdays are better.

Glam, Glam, Glam!
Shibuya district brings you the latest Tokyo fashion trend. Join the busiest Shibuya crossing, feel the crowds yourself and try not to bump on people! During the night, it is the neon forest of Tokyo. Come here and shop till you drop!

Shibuya Fashion Town
When visiting Tokyo it is almost inevitable to not visit Shibuya. Shibuya is the ultimate shopping area (Center Gai and Shibuya 109) in Tokyo for young people. Here you can find many department stores, the latest fashion items and the really cool concept restaurants and cafes. Keep in mind that it's a very crowded and busy area, but there is lots to see. You can get a nice view from the busy Shibuya Crossing from the Starbucks cafe.

Shibuya rocks!!!!
Shibuya is a great place to visit in any ways! There is the famous crossroad in front of the station, which is really fun to walk through or for making some excellent pictures. And if you are getting bored of the crowds and want to take a rest, simply walk to the Yoyogi Park. I think it is the biggest park in Tokyo and also very beautiful. There are even some small lakes inside of it and it is one of the few parks in which you are allowed to walk on the green area- Perfect for a good picnic!

Tokyo drift
Ok none of that happens here. Yes very sad indeed, but I will say if you're not a noob, then yes the crosswalk is extremely busy and fun to walk around. This place is always exciting. At night the place is as bright as ever, it really does feel like being in a movie with promotional videos playing on the giant monitors on the buildings. Bring sunglasses for when you come here at night, this place is hot and I am not talking about 109. For you ladies you have the most amazing shopping mall ever and for guys who like eye candy OMG, I damn near melt every time I go there everyone is a 10. There are many food places but nothing that really sparks my interest. There is shaky's pizza which is good if you like pizza but don't want to spend that crazy amount for Domino's, then go here for all you can eat during happy hour for 900yen. This is a pretty young crowd and with a lot of people there are many different fashion trends to steal from, everyone has their unique style that I like. Clubs are expensive, (some) places actually watch you and make sure you have a drink in your hands at all time or you gotta leave. But the night life here is where it's at. You can't come to Japan and not go to Shibuya.

Like being lost in a movie
I really enjoy visiting Shibuya for two reasons. One is people watching. I will never get bored of crowds of people photographing a statue of a dog with excitement, or filming others as they cross the busiest road in the world. The second reason is at night when it is raining, as I wander through crowds of umbrellas reflecting in the neon lights of restaurants and bars, I feel like I have wandered into the 1982 movie, Blade Runner; and I really like the movie Blade Runner.
