Is Shibuya Crossing the most famous crossroads in the world?


About 1 minute walk from Shibuya Station on the JR Yamanote exit Hachiko line, is the famous jamming junction in front of the Shibuya station which is well known among travelers from abroad. The jamming junction of Shibuya Station is the footbridge that stretches from all sides of the town of Shibuya.
When the number of people crossing is large, about 3000 people is the number by green light, and about 50 million people a day. It's like no other place in the world.
There really are a variety of people. Once the lights go green, people start running, tourists go to the center of the crossroads to take pictures, politicians approach the population near Hachiko. This scene of thousands of people crossing road is one of the most magnificent view ever.

This Shibuya crossing has become more and more famous for the appearance in hollywood movies, such as Resident Evil, Fast and Furious and many more. In Resident Evil IV, a scene in which zombies blithely cross the jamming junction can be seen in about the first five minutes. Personally my favorite of the appearance of Shibuya crossing was introduced in Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift and the ending credit scene of Fast and Furious 6. This is the reason for me to must visit this place.

Not only is it one of the famous attractions of Tokyo only, it could be a very famous place in the world. Giant billboard screens have become the epicenter of the latest trends and information and can be viewed from the jamming junction.

When I look at the traffic of people here, you can immediately see the fashion items today without watching TV and magazines. 
Not only tourists, but it is a place where there are many encounters and discoveries.

In a nutshell, I really love Shibuya Crossing. From the moment you step out of the Hachiko exit of Shibuya station, you will be confronted by the busiest street crossing in the world. The one that is in all the films, TV adverts etc. I found myself walking across time after time after time and loving it every time. And that's it. This caught my attention instantly!
