Tokyo Shibuya Neighbourhood Guide

Shibuya is home to what has to be the busiest and most photographed pedestrian crossing ion the world. At first glance Shibuya seems very young, but just away from the station things get a little more mature and there are some real foodie gems here. We especially like the area north west of the station and the view from Bello Vista bar is unbeatable.
