It’s hard to believe that in a mega metropolis like Tokyo, one of the biggest attraction is not a tower or a statue or a museum or a park, but a pedestrian crossing. You might have already seen it in news broadcasts, in movies and in television shows. It appeared in Lost in Translation, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, and Resident Evil: Afterlife and Resident Evil: Retribution. The traffic intersection in itself is nothing spectacular —a ten-lane crossing in the middle of Tokyo’s fashionable shopping district surrounded by neon signs and giant billboards screaming with advertisements. But what happens here at the massive Shibuya crossing —located just outside the Shibuya station’s Hachikō exit —once the traffic light turns red, is worth seeing.
