Shibuya Crossing Scramble - On average, half a million people pass through Shibuya Crossing every day and 3000 per crossing cycle, peaking at around 4 in the afternoon. Amazingly, there are few collisions between people, considering that everyone is walking at cross-purposes, so to speak. This is quite possibly a testament to Japanese civility. Or is it simply care and cautiousness? One thing for sure is that Tokyo people do know how to handle being in a crowded place, and are accustomed to dodging oncoming humanity. The scene fascinates foreigners who are not used to such crowds without the situation becoming a riot. Instead, the Shibuya Scramble is more like a ballet of precision timing and graceful movements at its best, and a frantic struggle to get to the other side as efficiently as possible. After that hectic hustle across the intersection, pause to catch your breath at the famous statue of dear old Hachiko in front of the station.
