Shibuya Scramble Crossing was full of people and I saw young people coming and going. Center Street and Miyashita Park were also very lively.

Gallery TOM, a museum for the visually impaired. Please experience the "now" of Japanese art in Shibuya.


As a center of youth culture, Shibuya also has a high concentration of live music venues and theaters.
