  • Illumination in Shibuya

    Illumination in Shibuya during the winter season- trees shine violently in blue, and the neighborhood is dyed to blue.

    It seems bit overly done, but many people are enjoying this extraordinary space.

    Is this a Hero or a Villain to you?

    I am always generous when I grade Shibuya. Well, I go like “this is Shibuya, then why not?”

    However, Shibuya is huge, and there are areas for offices, cultural facilities and residences. The interests of tourists and residents do not match. This is such a night view.

    Why don’t we try entertaining strangers only for a short time in a day?
