Here are some pictures I took in Shibuya, Tokyo, on August 24. The area might be one of Tokyos most famous spots at night, contributing to the citys image of a futuristic metropolis with its overload of neon signs, but it’s a rather dull place by day in my opinion.
In several wards of Tokyo, smoking on the streets is banned, and Shibuya is one of them. An endless number of signs makes you aware of that, but not everyone obeys. Those who do, however, have to find one of the not-so-numerous smoking areas to get their daily dose of nicotine.
The endless number of people who congest the place is astounding. The best place to witness this is the Shibuya Starbucks franchise, located on the opposite side of the big crossing in front of Shibuya station.
