Shibuya Scramble crossing & Statue of Hachiko
Shibuya Scramble crossing!!
Shibuya crossing is popular for film “lost in Translation” “The fast and the furious: Tokyo Drift” is world’s busiest intersection where hundreds of people cross at a time from 5 directions. Fearful of being lost some tourists holding each other’s hands shout “1,2,3, Go!!” as if to bungy jump from Kiyomizu temple. They struggle their way to meet in the center where fewer people than expected shoot a photo from every angle. Starbuck’s 2nd floor across from Shibuya st is perfect for overlooking the chaos every tow minute, many colorful umbrellas on rainy days. You can see many colorful umbrellas gathering on rainy days.
