Just around the corner you will find Center Gai, a busy pedestrian area filled with shops selling the latest wear and accessories. Strolling through this neon lit zone is an experience in itself. For the ladies it would be a sin to miss out on the iconic cylindrical building that is known as Shibuya 109, where you can find hundreds of boutiques spanning ten floors of fashionable goodness.

This is quite possibly the most famous waiting area in all of Japan, as is evident by the dense crowd that engulfs the area.
