While the temperatures have cooled down a bit, its still rather hot n muggy back here in Tokyo ;-;
Today we take a look at Shibuya - home to the worlds most busiest pedestrian crossing. We visit Center-gai street, Tsutaya, Starbucks, Labi, Sega Game Center, Maruhan Pachinko, Mandarake, Village Vanguard, Dougen-zaka Street, Chiyoda Inari Shrine, Bunkamura and a few other places in the area.
To get to Shibuya, all you need to do is get off at Shibuya station.
First photo - Shibuya 109 scramble crossing where the Tokyo Dance Trooper once used to dance ^^
...and here you see the same mural back in 1996-ish. Here I sat to record the sounds of Shibuya on my mini disc recorder - I would listen to the recording which served as a motivation to help me to continue to study Japanese.
Much of Japan's fast Internet speeds are thanks to these telecommunication poles above ground - meaning that we don't need to dig to install the latest optics. Some think they are messy - I love them.
More places to visit listed up in the Places to Visit in Japan post and below.
