[Introducing a new feature on NoBoundaries I'm calling "What It's Like," each installment will bring to you a different first person experience that I've encountered while on the road. I'm going to provide very little commentary, and just give you a chance to experience it for yourself. Please leave comments.]
This is a short video of the famous intersection in the Shibuya Ward of Tokyo that is reportedly the world’s busiest. WOW! That’s a lot of people…and it looks like that at every crossing. Shibuya is the fashion center of Tokyo, it has a great energy about it and, in my opinion, is best experienced at night. (It reminds me of Time Square in New York City.) This intersection is featured in the Sofia Coppola film Lost in Translation.
(This video was taken by my brother Adam, check out the website of his time in Japan.)
