    Shibuya Station is a very large train station and really at the heart of the famous fashion, shopping and entertainment district of Shibuya. Most of the major Shibuya attractions and things to do are just outside of Shibuya Station or within a short walk including the famous Shibuya Crossing, the popular meeting place of Hachiko Statue, Shibuya 109 fashion shopping centre, Shibuya Hikarie and one of the busiest Starbucks stores in the world (with great views of Shibuya Crossing). The station is the third busiest train station in Tokyo, after Shinjuku and Ikebukuro, with around 2.4 million passenger movements per week day.

    Currently the station buildings are being redeveloped, with the eastern building that previously housed part of the Tokyu Department store, now being closed due to be demolished. The Tokyu Department store in the western building continues to operate as do all the train lines.

    A very different looking Shibuya Station first opened on the 1st of March in 1885 as a stop on the Shinagawa Line (equivalent of today’s Yamanote Line).

      Shibuya Station is currently undergoing an epic face lift. People complain that it’s gotten really confusing and inconvenient during rush hours, and I have to agree. If you can skip Shibuya for transfers and switch at either Harajuku, Meiji Jingumae, or another close stop, do it. You need a tour guide just to navigate the exits. I lost count of how many times I had to ask where I was at.
