Shibuya crossing, the busiest intersection in the world

The Shibuya crossing is the busiest intersection in the world. When the pedestrian signal turns green, literally hundreds of people start crossing the road in all directions. This a popular spot for time-lapse photographers which set their cameras on tripods to take photos on a regular interval and then combined them into an accelerated movie. When I got there, the weather was not so great and I struggled to find a good location to take the shots. This blog describes the best viewpoints of Shibuya crossing. I wish I had known before!

Gaijin San

Since my better half is Japanese I often have the chance to travel to Japan. I grew fond over time of this magnificent country. I thought of sharing with you some places worth visiting in this little but growing travel guide to Japan. I try to show with images what I can't express with words. I hope you may find here some inspiration! For those who wonder, I chose the moniker Gaijin-San after being called like this by a waitress at a grilled eel restaurant. "Gaijin" means foreigner and "San" is a honorific suffix in Japanese.
