Shibuya Neighborhood, Shibuya

Metro: Shibuya's insider take:

The crossing in front of Shibuya station, one of the busiest intersections in the world, is a sight in itself, with thousands of pedestrians and huge video screens blaring the latest J-pop. Shibuya is where locals come to get lost in the hilly maze of restaurants, shops, bars, clubs, and gaming parlors. This is the gathering place for Tokyo's kogyaru—girls with dyed hair, deep tans, and boyfriends to match—as well as uniformed schoolkids and salarymen out for a night on the town. Head past the video-screen towers, under the neon arches, and downhill into the winding streets, where stores such as the American cult boutique Opening Ceremony, which arrived in Tokyo in 2009, join established shops like Tomorrowland. Uphill is mostly residential, as well as a less frenetic location for hotels such as the Granbell Shibuya. —Updated by Rebecca Willa Davis
