Tokyo (Japan), June 11 (ANI): Shibuya town in Tokyo is the young fashion center in the capital. It has the latest trends in Tokyo and it is visited by many young people. Many places in this town are famous among foreigners. But maybe the most famous attraction is this traffic intersection. It is called Shibuya Crossing. It is just outside the main exit of Shibuya Station. There are three pedestrian crossing signposts on the scramble walkway. At one scramble intersection, many people randomly walk across in all directions, but they don't get in the way of each other. Today, it is known all over the world as a cityscape that symbolizes the Japanese people. It was first built in 1973. This bronze statue of a dog attracts foreign tourists. The dog's name is “Hachiko”. It kept waiting for his dead owner for years in front of Shibuya Station. Then the bronze statue, created to honor Hachiko, became a famous meeting spot for visitors in Shibuya. Currently, the area around Shibuya Station is under redevelopment, a high-rise complex has been opened and stations on multiple lines are being built to make it convenient. Shibuya now represents one of the modern urban areas in Japan, and with renewal it will attract foreigners from many countries around the world.
