Shibuya never sleeps. It is Tokyo’s Times Square, always busy and one of the city’s main transport hubs. Famous Shibuya Crossing, where pedestrians fight their way from many different traffic lights, is an attraction in itself. If you just stand still and observe, it feels like a choreographed dance. Most of the crowd transiting around Shibuya is young and so is the focus of many stores and restaurants. Even so, there is plenty for all ages. Even though there are no luxury hotels in the area, the best being the Cerulean, it is, in my opinion, the best place to stay because many of other Tokyo’s areas like Aoyama, Omotesando, Meguro and Daikanyama are within a 10 to 15-minute walk. Even Roppongi and Shinjuku are not that far.
