Tokyo is heavily populated for sure. This view from Tokyo Skytree demonstrates the city’s vastness.
A closer look walking through the Harajuku District further proves it.
And Shibuya Crossing’s traffic provides more population proof. At first glance, this area looks a lot like Times Square, Picadilly Circus, and maybe even the Salamanca District in Madrid.
But a closer look shows exactly why it’s unique. Every so often, all of the traffic stops, allowing for all of the people to cross the street in virtually any direction. If you’re ever in Tokyo and have the time, then this is worth adding to the list.
