Halloween in Shibuya Tokyo

A recent phenomenon, Shibuya is now THE place to be for Halloween. I was there last year and caught these photos.

Everyone’s favorite spot for photos is “The Scramble” which is the intersection where pedestrians are permitted to cross diagonally. Almost any time of the day, this is an interesting sight, but on Halloween, with most everyone in costumes, it is a special event with each pulse.

I like candid photos best. This is my favorite shot from this trip.
