Just on dusk at the Hachiko crossing in Shibuya - said to be the busiest pedestrian crossing in Japan. The illumination is provided by three massive TVs.

Crossing sequence 1.
Take a deep breath.

Crossing sequence 2.
Move as quickly as you can and jostle for the best position.

Crossing sequence 3.
Keep your eyes straight ahead and don't deviate from the prize at the other side of the street.

Crossing sequence 4.
Just try not to get pushed over as you make it any way you can to the other side before the man turns red.
