-- The iconic Shibuya Pedestrian Scramble - While the traffic gets its turn, each little corner of the intersection steadily fills up, up, up, and just as the people begin to spill out into the street, the crosswalk lights turn green and the mayhem starts. Everybody meet in the middle in a frantic mess, bumping, side stepping and swerving around each other as they try to cross. It is an undeniable representation of the City of Tokyo itself; lots of people, lots of action, and lots of fun.

-- We actually walked across this pedestrian crossing a total of 6 times just to get the perfect shot. Each time like clock work, it was empty then flooded. I’ve crossed many crosswalks in my 2 years in Japan, but none as busy and crowded as this one.
