Girls Only Mall At Shibuya 109 In Tokyo

Shibuya goes down as the fashion capital of the world in my books! The all-girls fashion mall Shibuya 109 has 7 stories with many sexy clothing options. Make sure to eat Korean on the rooftop of Shibuya 109!

Shibuya is definitely my favorite district in Tokyo. In my opinion it is the fashion capital of the world. I took the metro from Shinjuku Station which is only a few minutes away.

Shibuya is known for its popular scrambled crossing. It is located in front of the Shibuya Station and stops vehicles in all directions to allow pedestrians to inundate the entire intersection. Three massive LCD screens mounted on closeby buildings overlook the crossing.

I wanted to find the rooftop soccer field near Shibuya Station, this soccer field is used during a night scene in the popular movie; "Fast & Furious - Tokyo Drift" where a bunch of kids play soccer.

I zoomed in with Google Maps on my laptop and found the location. I was surprised how easy it was to get to this roof top since the field is rented out on an hourly basis to local amateur soccer clubs.

Some of the soccer players came up to me and asked me where I was from. They were very surprised when I told them I was from Holland since most foreigners are usually American. It was fun to answer all the questions they had about Dutch soccer.

The gigantic Starbucks store overlooking the crossing is also one of the busiest in the world. On the northwest side of Shibuya station, there is a popular meeting place with a statue of Hachiko, while on the northeast side of Shibuya station there is another popular meeting place with a statue called "Moyai". The statue resembles a Moai statue, and it was given to Shibuya by the people of Niijima Island in 1980.

The highlight of the day was definitely the Shibuya 109 department store building which is the hotspot for many girls to buy the latest hot fashion. The most impressive store was Liz Lisa, gorgeous girls are working here and luckily they helped me locate Atom Nightclub which was around the block. I went to the top floor for some lunch at a Korean restaurant, supposedly many Japanese people love Korean food due to its healthy ingredients.
