Shibuya

Shibuya is an immensely popular commuter hub, packed with department stores, specialty shops, bars and restaurants. Its most well-known celebrity is Hachiko, a dog memorialized with a bronze statue for its faithfulness almost a century ago. Shibuya Crossing is Japan's most photographed intersection, made famous in Lost in Translation for its video screens and converging pedestrians when the lights change.

Tokyo is Japan's economic and cultural center. Vibrant neighborhoods and fantastic cuisine are around every corner. This mecca of Japanese pop culture fused with traditional ideals is one of the world's most entertaining cities.
