Shibuya district - Tokyo-to
Shibuya district

Shibuya is a bustling, youth-oriented shopping district where it’s easy to get the feeling that everyone over the age of 35 has been sent back to Ueno or Ikebukuro.
Like Shinjuku, Shibuya is not exactly rich in sights but it is a good area to stroll around and there’s some of the best department store browsing to be had in all Tokyo.
You may want to avoid the area on weekends, when the streets are jammed with fashionable Tokyo kids.

Directions: - A short walk from JR Shibuya Station
