A special ward in Tokyo, Shibuya is an ideal place for travellers to be based at. These are some of the essential things to do that will make for unforgettable memories.

Walk Along the Shibuya Crossing

You are bound to have seen the iconic pedestrian scramble when Tokyo is featured in movies; this is the famed Shibuya Crossing. Starbucks opposite Shibuya Station offers a good vantage point of this spot close to Cerulean Tower Tokyu Hotel, though you should also experience crossing it yourself be it day or night!

Visit the Hachiko Statue

Conveniently located walking distance away from the above crossing is the Hachiko Memorial Statue, a popular attraction in Shibuya. Hotels near this site give you ample opportunities to visit this statue built in the memory of a faithful dog who once waited here; watch the movie “Hachi: A Dog’s Tale” to find out more!

Shop for Fashion

Fashionistas have much to look forward to with plenty of shopping in Shibuya to enjoy. Trendsetters and those wanting the latest fashion can head to Laforet Harajuku and Tokyu Plaza Omotesando Harajuku. Also of note are the Gyre shopping centre with its huge Chanel boutique and the 10-floor fashion mall, Shibuya 109.

Experience the Nightlife

As the day ends, Shibuya’s nightlife scene comes to life offering more fun adventures. You can enjoy a beer at Japanese pubs, sing your heart out with friends at karaoke bars and go on foodie adventures at areas like Nonbei Yokocho. Of course, you can also dance the night away at clubs the likes of Womb!
