Tokyo's busy Shibuya area before and during the pandemic

I can’t get past two minutes of this. Just too depressing.

That’s a huge contrast in an area that’s world famous for being busy.

Another thing that was surprising about the video was the sheer amount of English language text on display. Not having been to Japan before, I hadn’t expected that at all.

It didn’t use to be like that. Japan has opened up to the international language of commerce and tourism in the last 20 years.
