Shibuya Crossing. Tokyo, Japan
Many cities have their own significant places, such as the Statue of Liberty in New York, the Eiffel Tower in Paris or Red Square in Moscow. Tokyo, in its turn, can't be imagined without Shibuya — the most charming, extraordinary and tangled crossing in the world.
While the pedestrians are waiting for the traffic light signal, the number of people accumulating on pavements is getting several hundred. As soon as the green light is on, all of them rush across the road following the unusual diagonal crosswalks and move from four directions simultaneously. Thousands of people walk through Shibuya Crossing daily: it is the pulse and the image of the dynamic life of Japan's capital.
The Crossing is located near Shibuya Station is the fourth-busiest railway station in Japan. It has six exits, with one of them named Hachikō in honour of the famous dog, the symbol of faithfulness in Japan. The statue stands near one of Shibuya's corners at the crossroad.
