Shibuya Crossing

Shibuya Crossing is most likely one of the busiest intersections in Japan, if not in the world.
You may have read my post about it here and it is one of my favourite spots – pure excitement, but very busy.
Last weekend I managed to get video footage of the crossing both in the day and at night – merged them together for you to watch.Β  The excitement of the crossing is how I feel about Tokyo. but not Japan.Β  Japan is more humble than this crossing.

Here is Shibuya Crossing, Tokyo, Japan.

Does your city have such a crazy crossing?

  1. thanks for the vid! i love looking at busy streets like this (i’m not sure why, especially at night it’s just mesmerising!) i’d really like to go there one day thats for sure πŸ™‚

  2. Nice video! I remember being there a few years ago and thinking it was amazing that people didn’t smack into each other. There seemed to be a sense of order amid the chaos and despite the huge crowds it was easy to cross on foot.

  3. Heretic,
    You’re welcome. Expect more videos as I get more and more on youtube and make movies on my comp. If you come to Tokyo, then get in touch!

    Sarah S.,
    It seems there is a synergy and everyone inherently understands where they should walk – its hypnotic!

  4. It’s funny how most foreigners are more interested in seeing the intersection itself than the famous Hachiko statue on the corner. Myself included πŸ˜‰

  5. Nick Ramsay,
    Well the statue doesnt move and have glittering lights on it!
