Shibuya Station

The Shibuya station is undergoing construction for the 2020 Olympics, but that's not slowing down the crowds in Shibuya. It's the downtown area closest to us. It reminds me of photos of NYC. There are large electronic billboards everywhere making noise. The intersection is one of the busiest in the world. The lights all turn red for people to cross, and it feels like a thousand people cross at a time. It is really sensory overload! We even saw people dressed in Mario costumes driving go-karts through the area! After seeing that and crossing the intersection, we went down an escalator to the Tokyo Big Food Show. It's a market with lots of prepared foods and a grocery area. We saw Halloween candy and pumpkin decorations for sale! I'm so happy Halloween is a thing here. We didn't buy any of this candy, but I was happy to see it nonetheless. :)
