Address Shibuya Crossing 2-chōme-2-1 Dōgenzaka, Shibuya City, Tokyo 150-0043, Japan

A symbol of Japanese dynamism and precision, the Shibuya Crossing is one of the busiest places in the world, regularly compared to Times Square in New York.

2.4 million people cross the crosswalks of Shibuya Crossing every day and about 2,500 at the same time at every green light! Located across from the Hachikō exit of Shibuya Station, this is a popular spot for Japanese people, and is also popular with tourists.

The Hachikō exit takes its name from a dog known to have waited every evening at the exit of the station, in the 1920s, for his master, Professor Ueno. After his death at work, the faithful companion continued to come every day at the same time for nine years. This dedication led the authorities to erect a statue to him in 1934, one year before his death. It is located outside the station, at the place where he was waiting every day.
