Shibuya - the most interesting place in the world?

It's winter and it's cold out there. Possibly not as cold as some places but cold enough for me.  However, when you arrange to catch up with someone there can be few better places than Shibuya crossing. I'm always amazed at the people who spend their lives looking at their phones when one of the wonders of the world is there for them to appreciate if they'd just look up. 

Thousands cross every few minutes like a human migration moving on their way but it's the colours and the variety that are incredible. Japanese have a reputation for being conformist that is, based on watching the people walk by, utterly underserved. There are no two people alike, each presenting their own story. If you have to wait a few minutes for someone, Shibuya crossing must be one of the most interesting places in the world. You just need to look.
