Shibuya is a trendy shopping district that caters to a young and upscale crowd. It’s quite a bit hipper than Ginza and the large number of restaurants, bars, and theaters in this area make it the perfect destination for a fun night on the town.

As you’re crossing the street from Shibuya station take care not to be run over while ogling the multiple huge television screens that seem to dominate the area. It’s been said that Shibuya is the home to more multi-story high TV screens than anywhere in the world.

Interesting trivia: The Tower Records in Shibuya used to be the largest record store in the world (a distinction now apparently held by the Virgin Megastore in Time Square New York). While it may no longer be the largest record store, it does feature a huge selection of music as well as a very large selection of English language books and magazines.
