From Harajuku, we took a train down to Shibuya, the famed shopping and entertainment district within Tokyo metropolitan. At the heart of Shibuya(above) - prominent landmark of Shibuya is the large intersection in front of the station Hachiko exit, which is heavily decorated by neon advertisements and giant video screens and gets crossed by amazingly large crowds of pedestrians(below) each time the traffic light turns green. We had to rush to take this shot as you can see swarms of pedestrians departing across the traffic crossings behind Gayle.
