Shibuya Pedestrian Scramble

I took the Hanzomon Line from Nagatacho to Shibuya at about 8:30 PM upon arrival and found a traffic engineer's nightmare. In the picture, there are pedestrians everywhere streaming from all directions imaginable in what seems to be lightly organized chaos. My neighbor described it as Times Square multipled by ten, but I am inclined to give Times Square a little more credit because of the size of the buildings. Needless to say however, this is one amazing intersection and the surrounding neighborhood is like one large department store.
