Shibuya Crossing

Best spot to look at Shibuya crossing

Shibuya crossing is one of the symbols of Tokyo. It’s used as a stage for many movies and animation. It’s a must-see when you visit Tokyo. You will be amazed by the size of the crowd and how they manage not bumping into each other. It feels like looking into a kaleidoscope.

①Crossing View Located at the rooftop of a shopping building Magnet by Shibuya 109, you can look down the crossing. The building is 7 stories tall, which is just the right height to view the crossing. If you want to take a great picture of the crossing, Crossing View is the best spot. The admission is ¥600, but it’s worth it. If you pay an extra ¥1000, you can take Crossing Photo by the camera at the deck.


Opening hours: 12:00-16:30 (8/3 Mon.~) Admission fee: ¥600 This opening hours might be changed on short notice due to COVID-19. Please check the official website of MAGNET by 109 for more information.

②Shibuya SKY This is the newest open-air observatory in Shibuya. It’s 229m high and has a beautiful panoramic view both day and night. The admission is ¥2000. There are many observatories in Tokyo, such as Tokyo City View in Roppongi, Tokyo Tower, or Sky tree. I’ve been to all those places, but Shibuya SKY is the best one. Since the building is so tall, everything looks small, but the view is gorgeous, and you can see how the crossing blends in the city. If you want to see not only the crossing but as the whole Shibuya, you can get the best view in Tokyo from Shibuya SKY.

③Inokashira Line Hallway This hallway connects the 2nd floor of JR station to the 2nd floor of Keio Inokashira station. It's one of the most famous photo spots for the crossing. It's not as close as Crossing View, but there are always people standing by the window and taking pictures. The best thing about it is that it’s free.
