The nearest city area from my dorm/school is Shibuya. Naturally, this became the place i visit most often whenever i get to town.

It is also one of the busiest areas in Tokyo, with shopping centres along every road.

Day and Night view of the area.

A 10 story high TV screen on a building along a major junction.

This is the picture of the famous Shibuya Hachiko exit cross junction. Like any other cross junction, when the traffic light green man comes on, pedestrians can cross in all directions.
Before the crossing:
Green Man signal just came on:
10 seconds in to the crossing
20 seconds into the crossing:

How many hundred people are there on the road??
No wonder it is cited to be the world's busiest junction.

Heres a video taken from YouTube. The best place catch the action is from a Starbucks cafe on the 2nd floor.
