Shibuya Crossing is a shopping district in Tokyo with a population of approximately 208,000 people. Once the site of the Shibuya family castle, this major shopping and entertainment center is truly a city that never sleeps. The opening of the Yamanote Line in 1885 transformed this area into a hot spot for Japan's youth, providing a large fashion district and exciting nightlife for the young. Identified as Japan's "Time Square", this area has been the focus point of many Hollywood movies such as The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift and both Resident Evil movies After Life and Retribution.
The camera is placed over the main crossing area looking downward. You are able to see the main shopping areas and the famous Shibuya Station, the busiest rail in Japan. See the current traffic halted to allow for the thousands of pedestrians to make the crossing before visiting so you know what to expect. Check to see if the weather is prime before planning your night on the town with this live stream. It is truly a site to see.
