Mag's Park

Shibuya & Shimo-Kitazawa

The rooftop of the Magnet by Shibuya 109 department store has the best views over Shibuya's famous scramble crossing. It's screened with plexiglass, so you can get good photos without having to worry about losing anything over the edge. To enter, look for the doors at the back of the 7th floor food court. Purchase tickets from the vending machine.
