Intersection

This is a scramble intersection in front of Shibuya Station. Said to be the world’s busiest crosswalk, it has become a famous sight to see in Tokyo.
When the light turns green, the intersection overflows with pedestrians. At busy times, over 3000 people can cross at once. What’s amazing about this spectacle is that no one bumps into each other!
This intersection is encompassed by large screens running advertisements.

    疫情的影響真的很嚴重,人潮少了很多

  • 王添財

    過馬路的人多到像海浪一樣湧來,讓我大吃一驚

  • 饒倩如

    來自四面八方的行人同時走在這個路口,就算人潮如此的擁擠,所有人都能出乎意料的來回穿梭,也沒有推擠或碰撞的狀況發生,這種情形也只有在日本才能看得到

  • 黃秋燕

    終於見識到全世界最擁擠且繁忙的十字路口

  • 王之祐

    澀谷另有一個知名地標「八忠狗」,外國人必來朝聖地,日本人也把它當作會面地點
