Shibuya is one of the most popular cities to visit in Tokyo, Japan. Tourists and the locals visit Shibuya for a few reasons such as shopping for fashion, entertainment and taking photos of the popular large intersection of pedestrian crossing in front of Shibuya Station which is normally seen on Japanese dramas and movies. Apart from that, visitors also take selfie photos with Hachiko statue, a popular landmark attraction outside of Shibuya Station.
