The Harshest Valley 渋 谷

The world stops twice a day in Tokyo's Shibuya crossing

At the intersection of five bustling streets, thousands of people flood the streets, braving the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Some believe this to be a beautiful sight, seeing the chaos of humanity coexisting and thriving. But, beneath it all, lies an unsettling truth.

In the grand scheme of things, these people are just passing through. They have no real purpose but to get to the other side of the street. It's a pointless waste of humanity, a reminder that we all have a place in this world, but that place is often transient.

We're all part of a larger, greater picture, but we must remember that our part is only a part.

Perhaps not many people are aware, or care, that this iconic Tokyo site's name is translated as 'harsh valley.'
