The Shibuya Scramble Crossing

The famous Shibuya Crossing, known around the world and seen in several films and documentaries, is Tokyo's busiest intersection. It's also tagged as "The Shibuya Scramble Crossing" wherein all vehicular traffic stops so that pedestrians can cross in different directions.  

We spent a couple of hours here one Sunday, from afternoon until evening, to experience what seemed like chaos and magic at the same time. I was in awe. The Husband was in awe.  It was an amazing experience.

We've shared a couple of photos of our Shibuya rendezvous but the Husband also created a 15-second video so you can virtually experience crossing Shibuya with us. 

Hundreds of people intersecting for 50 seconds. To be a part of this collective energy was a gift of a lifetime. :) 

If you're in Tokyo, this is one place you shouldn't miss.
