Shibuya is one of Tokyo’s main business, shopping and nightlife areas. It is also home to one of the busiest stations in Tokyo and is famous for its pedestrian crossing – one of the busiest in the world.
(Above) Giant video screens are the norm in these here parts.
(Above) The pedestrian scramble at Hachikō Square, as you walk out of Shibuya station. This is one of the most famous intersections in the world and is very hectic. The picture doesn’t do it justice.
(Above) You see some very strange things walking around Tokyo!
(Above) We stopped for a drink and to rest our legs when we were approached by Mr Suzuki (far left). He was very keen to talk to us and after sending a couple of beers over to our table, he invited us over to join him and his friends. This guy is a bio-chemical engineer with an amazing knowledge and a lot of stories to tell. Several beers and lots of wine flowed as he impressed us with his stories, jokes and science. At the end, when we tried to pay, he was having non of it and wouldn’t let us even look at the bill. I estimate we consumed at least $100 worth of drinks. What an absolute legend!
