Shibuya is the most trendy place in Tokyo and probably the most trendy place East of London. It's always busy, always crowded and there is always something unexpected going on.
It mostly attracts young people who want to have a good time. Shibuya is just about that. The place to go is Hachiko Plaza, which is close to ths Shibuya station and where you will find a small statue of the dog Hachiko. This is one of the best places to meet friends before a night on the town. Gaspanic is close to the station and is a bar where your drink never leaves your hand because the punishment is to be kicked out onto the streets!
The whole area of Shibuya only gained its popularity after the 1923 earthquake when people from Tokyo slowly started to move to the west of the City. The cut throat competition between department stores of Tokyu and Seibu, with each trying to offer a more complete shopping experience than the other, has played a big role in the popularity of Shibuya. If you have a map you can walk to Harajuku which is less than 15min from Shibuya.
Also be sure not to miss the Meiji Shrine, an important shrine in a nice park. It is located in Shibuya ward but a bit north of the Shibuya area. Take a train to Harajuku Station and walk towards Yoyogi park. The Meiji Shrine is right near there.
