Shibuya Scramble Square
Shibuya Scramble Square is a large-scale composite facility directly connected to Shibuya Station that opened in 2019. On the highest level, 47 stories above ground, is an outdoor observation deck called Shibuya Sky. From here, the constant stream of people passing through the Shibuya Scramble Crossing can be seen directly below, and visitors can look out on a 360-degree panoramic view of the buildings of Tokyo, including Tokyo Tower and Tokyo Skytree. If the weather is good, Mt. Fuji can even be seen, but only during daylight. For the most diversity in sceneries, we recommend visiting on a sunny day just before sunset; that way, visitors can enjoy the daytime scenery, the sunset, and the nightscape all in one trip. The stunning scenery is not the only allure of the observation deck, however: visitors can also relax in a hammock space and, after sunset, watch a light show that uses 18 searchlights. For a smooth trip, entrance tickets to the observation deck can be purchased online in advance.
The 2nd level below ground to the 14th level above ground is full of businesses, and a variety of shops are set up, including fashion, miscellaneous goods, cafes, restaurants, and more. Shibuya Scramble Square is attracting attention as a new symbol of Shibuya, where visitors can enjoy the latest fashion and gourmet.

3 out of 5 stars
Seeing Shibuya scramble crossing from the ground is one thing, but having a birds eye view of the iconic landmark is a completely different experience. I got a better sense of just how many people use the crossing on their daily commute. If the observation deck in Shibuya Sky is too high then there are plenty of other places that overlook the crossing. One of my personal favourites is the conveniently placed Starbucks above the multimedia store Tsutaya. I'm giving it three stars because seeing it once was enough for me. After that it begins to lose its lustre. Especially when you use it on a semi-regular basis; the wow factor disappears quickly when you're trying to navigate through waves of people moving in the opposite direction.
