the Pedestrian crossing at Shibuya

Press 'F' to favorite & 'L' to see the picture full screen.

  

Shibuya is famous for its scramble crossing. It is located in front of the Shibuya Station Hachikō exit and stops vehicles in all directions to allow pedestrians to inundate the entire intersection. Three large TV screens mounted on nearby buildings overlook the crossing. The Starbucks store overlooking the crossing is also one of the busiest in the world. The Shibuya Scramble is featured in the movie, Lost in Translation [3] and The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.

 

I could stand here and take these pictures all night long :) No matter how many times I see people cross it never stops to amaze me.
