A typical image of Tokyo is undoubtedly the multiple pedestrians crossing surrounded by neon lights and skyscrapers in Shibuya. Here where six streets, which is also known as Scramble (the stampede); is said to be the busiest crossroads of the world, sometimes it concentrated more than a thousand people at a time across all directions.

For a drink in Tokyo the best area is Golden Gai, a maze of narrow streets and wooden buildings under the feet of skyscrapers. Some examples are: Plastic Bar Mode, the Albatross G or the mythical La Jetée.
