However, there are seems to be lots of changes around Shibuya area, due to 2020 Tokyo Olympic, there are lots of new instructions are going on recently. I personally just don't like those new building that much. But I do like those unique modern architectures.
During the night, we were walking around a very special area that hidden beside JR line. I believe it is called "Drunk Street" if you translate it directly from Japanese. There are lots of unique tiny pubs, restaurants around that area, I must say that is the coolest place so far.
I went to Shibuya couple weeks ago for working perpose. Usually, I don't really go to that side of Tokyo, because 1st, there are always too many people. 2nd, I like places that closer to river or seaside. 3rd, I like old/vintage things more than new ones. That is way now I live near east side of Tokyo.
For me, Shibuya is a place for younger generations that like to stay outside until mid of the night, get drunk, and have fun with friends. The Shibuya crossing is one of the popular places in Japan. As growing up, the street full of department stores, or drinking places are not my cup of tea now. lol
Since I am moved to Tokyo 1 year ago, you can see so many places are quickly changing day by day. They smashed lots of old/historical buildings make it newer for 2020 Tokyo Olympics. And if you like real traditional Japan, you can still find those Edo buildings, shops around some specific area in Tokyo, especially East Tokyo.
If you like more traditional Japan like me, check out my other posts about those areas.
