A Shibuya Square survey

Hi all,
For one of my design courses i am designing a "redevelopment" of Shibuya Square in Tokyo. for some research i needed to survey people to see what they thought of it and seeing that i can't go to Tokyo right now i was wondering if the fans and people who went to that area would love to give their thoughts on this square if it was ever to be redeveloped. And also give some ideas on what would make it a really good square. I'm looking for tourism stuff, architecture, anything that would be helpful.
Thank You

One interesting idea would be to "walk" the area with Google Street View.
It's a great way to have a sense of being there without traveling.
I did it with places that I've already visited and I got details more vividly
than when I was in person.I hope it helps you besides other feedbacks.
Good luck!

It's fully developed already. I don't know if there is anything more you can do to it?

I know that it has been redeveloped and that there is going to be a redevelopment with the Station next to it, however this is just a fake redevelopment and its not like its going to actually happen.

Shibuya Square's famous pedestrian horde is really crazy (I've seen it for myself), something could be done to help relieve the pressure. If we could magically change something, maybe there could be a large open underground area/pedestrian mall under the square that is easily accessible from street level. Also bury the rail lines and take down a few buildings to open up the square.

None of this is likely to happen but I'm just throwing out some ideas for your hypothetical redevelopment.

Hoping your son or daughter to try and do greater than there're, may make enjoying these individuals engage in, disheartening in addition to hurtful now and again. Moms and dads tend not to commonly would like to hold finding the young children punch available as soon as hitting.

If budget is not a concern, throw all the vehicular traffic underground

There is an underground shopping arcade under the square already.

Yeah I know, although I didn't study it in depth while I was there (I was busy trying not to get run over by people) I didn't see many obvious access points at street level. At not any that could compel people to take the underground passage instead of trying to cross the street.
