Great weather today and the crowds were out in Shibuya. As well as the many couples, tourists and others, the Hot Pepper mascot was out and about encouraging people to take a copy of the free restaurant guide.
There are many popular places for marketers to be passing out free samples, magazines or tissues. Directly in front of Tokyu Mark City is one of them.
The contact lens market must be quite competitive at the moment. I always see the Acuvue guys handing out material on the weekend.
Recently, there have been a large number of film crews on location at the Shibuya crossing area. Some filming, like the BBC crew for dannychoo.com, or others just taking still photos. The area seems to be growing in international appeal. Maybe Shibuya city should consider some sort of organization to help people film it in a similar way to how New York has done for its popular sites?
