It is reckoned that anything up to two thousand people can cross the Shibuya Scramble Crossing at peak time when the green men signal. Two thousand people! That is the size of many small towns in Ireland. Two thousand people all on the move at the same time. And two thousand more will follow. It is a sight to behold seeing the crowds swell as they wait to traverse the crossing. I just love it.

On my last night in Tokyo, I spent a couple of hours hanging around the crossing taking photographs. I did not want the night to end. I did not want to leave Tokyo. Here is another photograph I shot from that night. Black and white again. Thanks for all the kind words on the previous series of three!

The iPhone photograph gives a flavour of the crossing with the crowds crossing.
