This is the view from my apartment, overlooking Shibuya station and with a hint of the famous Shibuya Scramble crossing in the distance. I find the noise and filthy concrete to be particularly calming and attractive – which is funny, given that I grew up in a small beach town that most of my friends from Tokyo think is easily a more attractive view. It can be a little hard to tell from the footage, but it’s significantly less bustling in the current lockdown situation. Usually people swarm the platforms.
