The intersection in Tokyo's Shibuya area is one of the most popular and busiest in the world. One of its features is that the "zebras" on it are located not only across the roads, but also diagonally. The Sibuy Crossroads can be seen in such Hollywood films as Lost in Translation, Triple Fast and the Furious. Tokyo Drift "," Resident Evil: Retribution ", the anime" Apprentice of the Monster "and other works. This is one of the main symbols not only of Tokyo, but of the whole of Japan. Up to 3000 people can cross the road at the same time.
Around the crossroads
Next to the passage is the exit of the metro station of the same name, near which there is a statue of the most famous dog in history - Hachiko. It was here, for 9 years, that he was waiting for his master, who died unexpectedly. So the dog became the most recognizable symbol of loyalty and devotion.
There are five large screens around the intersection, as well as billboards, making it look like Times Square in New York City. Another detail that makes these places similar is the festivities on New Year's Eve. They also like to celebrate Halloween, which is gaining more and more popularity every year.
A popular location for tourists to watch the rushing crowd is the American chain Starbucks. Thanks to the panoramic windows on the second floor, there is an excellent view from here.
You can view the intersection from a height by going up to the 7th floor of the Magnet by Shibuya 109's shopping center. Also, good views open from the bridge at Shibuya subway station.
