Shibuya Crossing

Famous as one of the busiest crossings in the world. The Starbucks across the street is where shots of this busy sea of people was filmed for the film "Lost in Translation." Today, there are signs all around demanding you buy a coffee before taking pictures.

It might be interesting to point out that this was taken by setting my camera on 2 second delay, pressing the button and then periscoping my tripod (on which the camera is mounted) high above my head and just hoping it was pointed at something interesting. (It took a few shots get something remotely level)
