Shibuya Crossing

The world's busiest crossing in Tokyo

By Febry Fawzi   Nov 19, 2014

Besides Tokyo Tower there's another strong magnet pulling me to Tokyo. It is Shibuya Crossing. Shibuya is one of 23 city wards of Tokyo, packed with well-known brand stores, entertainment areas, and teenage districts. Shibuya Crossing itself is the most crowded place and it can be said it is the center of Shibuya.

Clearly, Shibuya Crossing is the busiest crossing in the world. There are at least 45,000 pedestrians every 30 minutes during rush hour. The world's busiest crossing is decorated by colorful neon at night. Here, you can find the famous Hachiko statue. It also is the setting of the Hollywood movie 'Lost in Translation' directed by Sofia Coppola in 2004. Enjoy crossing the busiest intersection in the world!

I liked how you went through the extra effort with night shots and fun angles. You probably spent two or three hours taking these pictures, having to to cross the street so many times!
