There is always action at the Shibuya scramble crossing. This edition of Shibuya Streets we are focusing on cars. During the 10 minutes I was at the crossing today I spotted the following:

Plenty of girls wearing Yukata at the moment. Probably they are on the way to a fireworks display

Not all the cars were lucky enough to make it as far as the crossing. This one was getting some special attention from a friendly police officer. Nice bike !

What is your favorite Shibuya street scene?

  1. vincento says

    Love Shibuya, especially from that crossing, love watch thousands of people passing through any time… Nice photos!

    1. shibuya246 says

      Yes, you can spend a lot of time at the crossing just watching passing foot traffic. It is a great place to be. 🙂

  2. Igor Inocima says

    Nice shots! Specially the Ferrari

    1. shibuya246 says

      Thanks. It is nice photographing a Ferrari. Even better to be riding inside one.

  3. whipcracker says

    i don’t know who’s more colorful all the vehicles or the people. And all the fancy sports cars, quite the selection. the lexus is sold under it’s own brand over here. Heck the police are even as colorful as the rest of the vehicles, they look like there all set for an Anime Series of their own. I would definately be on the lookout for them. those two busses are probably saying,”Haven’t I seen you somewhere else before…? and the other says “we have to quit meeting like this, what would our friends say?” 🙂
    Well what kind of goodies are we having for Conbini Monday?

    1. shibuya246 says

      Lots of cars to choose from in such a short space of time. The policeman pulling over the Benz looked really strange because he was started to squat down. I couldn’t get a good angle on him without him seeing me so I hid behind his bike 😉

    hey shibuya246,

    this was one of my favourite posts for some reason. Girls and cars. I know that’s not what the blog is about hahah but once in a while it’s nice to see 🙂 Read all your posts keep it up sir.

    1. shibuya246 says

      Thanks for your comments. It is nice to get some variety I agree. I was only at the crossing for about 4 changes of lights and thought it would be fun to take cars rather than people for a change, but the people are always fun to take as well.

      I will post more about Shibuya fashion, girls, guys and cars later.

      Thanks for reading 🙂

  5. Protocol Snow says

    Lovely red on that Ferrari. Keep up the good work on the Shibuya Streets series!

    1. shibuya246 says

      Ill keep at it. Its good to look back on the series and see a few changes on the streets, but mostly it is all girls, cars, fashions and a few strange guys.

      Thanks 🙂
