澀谷(Shibuya)







澀谷(Shibuya)是與銀座、新宿同樣著名的一大繁華商業街,同時又是年輕人文化的發源地,風靡一世的白眼黑臉厚底鞋的奇異女孩,帕拉帕拉舞無不出自於此。出澀谷車站北口,在全開放式十字路口對面,巨大的電視牆不分晝夜地播放新聞廣告,成群時髦酷男倩女,手持移動電話,相約而來,又隨即消失在澀谷街頭無數的歌廳、迪廳、游藝廳、影院、咖啡廳之中。澀谷的主要設施有車站東口宮益阪附近的東急文化會館,北口的東急百貨店,中心街道玄阪附近的QFRONT,西武百貨店,丸井百貨店,109時裝城,馬克城和西口的東急廣場以及NHK電視演播廳等。

Vibrant, lively, fun, faddish, crowded, cramped, and busy, and the streetwise love it! Shibuya is another shopping and entertainment district situated in the west of Tokyo. It's newer than its rival Shinjuku and has a cleaner, safer reputation. Alongside its huge department stores it's also famous for the studios of NHK, the Olympic gymnasium, "Love Hotel Hill" and "Hachiko" - the tear-jerking statue of a dog.

First take the Hachiko Exit of Shibuya Station. Once out, bring out the tissues, prepare for crowds, for what you need to look for is the small statue of Hachiko, the legendary dog. It's a terrible tale - his master had long-time passed away, but year after year, night after night, by the station Hachiko faithfully waited. Finally, when he himself died on March 8th 1935, many a heart was touched. He was given a huge send off and his body now rests in the National Science Museum.
