In Shibuya, the shopping quarter centering on the terminal station in Yamanote Line as well as Ikebukuro or Shinjuku are formed. After Shibuya Parco opened in 1973, many young men came to gather, and it became the place of dispatch of fashion replaced with Shinjuku in 1975 and afterwards. Moreover, probably, it is one factor into which the train and subway of the Tokyu series having been extended into Shibuya Station, and carrying out also developed. When the terminal department store was made at the station, the residents of the Tokyu area along the railroad line through which it flowed into Ueno or the Ginza by the tram or bus via Shibuya came to do some shopping in Shibuya, and stored a success. It is in 1975 and afterwards that Shibuya which was only one terminal station in the suburbs will get the present status in its hands, and it became the foundation of development that SEIBU department stores and PARCO have marched out. Development competition of Tokyu and Seibu starts after it. Big movement of the place of dispatch of fashion of a young man's town, youth culture, etc. started, and the place of dispatch of fashion moved to Shibuya from Shinjuku in the 1970s. Now, Harajuku and Shibuya are the center of the youth culture on fashion relations. For an old person, here is visible to the town which get tired by the reason of multicultural space and young men's numerousness although it's so active. I took this photograph in winter season.

Very nice urban scene captured in excellent quality. Very nice modern buildings like in New York City. I see lots of people hanging around. Amazingly, most of them are wearing black coats. I like that color contrast. The blue sky makes a nice background.

The notes made known, an interesting evolution of this neighborhood. Modern buildings and advertisements are spectacular. I love seeing the people and everyday life. The composition is clever, as in the ws. The light, colors, sharpness and depth are excellent. Bravo.
Have a nice day

Excellent narratives, this image depicts the day to day situation of urban life which is common scene in most big cities. The youthful crowd is part of the main show within the dead non-living elements, the urban jungle skyrise buildings etc but that is what makes a good image. The sun is still low in the sky making lots of nice glow with good play of soft shadows entering the square revealing the prominent structures in the backdrop with good touches of some vivid colors. Interesting slice of local life, good compo, lighting and general contrast. Well done, Congrats

Vibrant town scenery, Mikio, with all those people in a rush, dynamic and moving to all directions on the paved street.
Winter morning low-angle light, show the modern buildings in fine outlines, and by same time the street remain under shade. Maybe a later hour would be flushed with sun-rays.
Have a nice new week,
