A French tourist waves for the cameras at the scramble crossing at Hachiko Square Shibuya, reportedly the world’s busiest pedestrian crossing. It’s surrounded by video screens, giving a very Bladerunner feel. It’s overlooked by one of the busiest Starbucks cafes in the world, from where this photograph was taken. The crossing also features in a scene from Lost in Translation with Bill Murray and Scarlet Johansson.
