Shibuya Crossing or called the スクランブル交差点 sukuranburu kousaten is the Scrabble Crossing in Shibuya area of Tokyo. This is a great shot of what it looks like.
They call it a scramble because you can walk in any direction across the intersection. Essentially, no cars cross in any direction when the pedestrians cross. It is a real fun experience because of the type of people you can see in such a very short time frame. Waves of people. Like tidal. You can see tons of great fashion as well.
It is the heart of Shibuya displayed in a many movie. The Starbucks opposite to Hachiko is the highest grossing Starbucks (in terms of sales) in the world.
Of course we cant forget about Hachiko. He is a famous dog, and if you come to Tokyo, you are bound to hear about him. Dont you wanna know? Well, you can read about him here. Of course I have met Hachiko, here is my pic! Everyone meets in front of the famous dog statue!
I have put a new photo set up of Shibuya, so check it out here!
On Thursday Sept 6th, I am going to Bangkok, Thailand for 3 days. Flying on JAL – Japan Airlines. Arrive at 12am on Friday morning so I checked out this Sleeping in Airports site for tips to pass the 6 hours wait. My friend Samarth arrives at 6am from India, so I will have some time to kill.
