When I first read about Shibuya Crossing I really couldn’t imagine how it would be to take a walk across the famous intersection outside Shibuya Station. It is unbelievable when you come there and have a look at the crowd of shoppers, commuters, young and older people. It is really fascinating when all the lights turn red at this busy junction at the same time in every direction. Traffic stops completely and the street is full of pedestrians. Really amazing!
Recently I was in Japan and it was absolutely stunning!
I love Tokyo, the city of contrasts with skyscrapers and tiny wooden houses, shopping malls and small artisan family businesses, modern clothing and traditional yukatas and kimonos… amazing! And – not to forget – the sakura blossoms were in full bloom! Full bloom! I’ve never seen so many different pinks, I swear! I don’t know how many pictures I took but I think there are about 1000 or so – and I have to check them all (; So it will take quite some time but in the next few days – or maybe weeks – I will post some of the photos I made.
Here are some photos from Ueno Park. Have fun and enjoy!
