Shibuya in Tokyo is second only to Akihabara as one of our of favourite places to truly observe the urban phenomena. The movie was captured by  darwinfish105 soon after the recent earthquake with a note from the author that despite the then fears of radioactive contamination the heartbeat of the city continued:

  • Absolutely amazing, its videos like these that make me want to move to Tokyo. Great soundtrack for the video as well. Only problem is the cultural differences are so great from the US you could live there for 10 years and still not get everything right.

    Also, NYC could learn a thing or two from this city in terms of architecture and layout to fit so many people in a small space.
