Best of Japan—Favorite Tokyo Street Scene

Shibuya Crossing, Tokyo

Nothing says, “Welcome to Tokyo!” better than the Shibuya Crossing. The neighborhood of Shibuya is known for shopping, fashion and nightlife. At this particular intersection, when the lights change from green to red; a giant surge of about 1,000 people cross and criss-cross to their destinations.

It is an amazing sight to watch so many people nonchalantly, nimbly and with great agility weave their way in and out of the grand walkway and is rather addictive to watch. It would seem as though this would be very loud and noisy, but the intersection is relatively quiet, given the sheer mass of humanity.
