wpc_07oct17wpc_07oct17_2wpc_07oct17_3

For this week’s photo challenge I decided to share pictures of the world’s biggest and busiest pedestrian crossing in Shibuya district in Tokyo. According to some published figures during rush hours around 2500 people cross the streets at the same time 🙂

I am glad that for once I was part of this crowd and you believe or not but there was not a sinlge incidence of misbehaving. World needs to learn so many things from Japenese people.

You can watch from live camera the present situation 🙂  Soon it will be 4 am in Tokyo. How about watching it tomorrow around 6 pm Tokyo time?

Looking back.

As I mentioned in my earlier post,  I donot have my camera with me and pictures were taken with Samsung s3. We covered distance of 8 km and walked upto height of 450 m above sea level. In the last leg the inclination was 12 %. We were tired but not exhausted. ( In last three days we have walked around 20 km 🙂 ).

Note: I forgot to take pictures of the many cattle grids we had to cross. I wonder if they work for sheeps! Has anyone of you seen a sheep crossing cattle grid?

Tomorrow I will be travelling again. Hope you all are enjoying your weekend.
