A "scramble intersection" differs from a normal pedestrian crossing. The flow of car traffic completely stops as pedestrians cross in all directions. The world's busiest scramble intersection can be seen in Shibuya, with 500,000 people crossing per day. At peak times, up to 3,000 people cross during one green light.
If you take a look, you can see almost every type of person imaginable, from people in eccentric fashions, students to business persons. Once you have taken in the view, why not take a photo as a souvenir? We recommend using a selfie-stick with the "scramble intersection" as the backdrop.
This is probably the place where you can take a picture together with the largest group of people in the world!

Yoyogi Park is the 4th largest city park within Tokyo's 23 districts. The park is separated by a road into 2 sections: A district is a forested area and in contrast, B district has an athletic field, outdoor stage and other facilities.
Once used as a military parade ground, the site became Washington Heights, the US army barracks after the war, then the Olympic Village for the 1964 Tokyo Olympic Games, and eventually became the park it is today. The young saplings from the park's opening period have now completely grown, becoming part of a deep forest along with the adjoining Meiji Jingu trees.
In 1990, the park was reborn when water facilities comprised of 3 small to large fountains (15 - 30 meters in height) and water circuits were completed, blessing the park with further greenery and water.
