Adjacent to Hachikō Plaza is arguably one of the coolest intersections you will ever see in your life. Made famous in the West following Sofia Coppola’s Lost in Translation, Shibuya Crossing is remarkable for its throngs of people, blazing neon lights and enormous video screens, which sometimes display live videos of the street scene below. The sheer energy of the place is enough to stop you dead in your tracks while you loudly proclaim to yourself, ‘Wow – I’m in Tokyo!’
