Pop quiz—Tokyo’s bustling Shibuya Crossing is famous for:
- a. The statue of HachikÅ, a dog who used to wait at Shibuya Station every day for his guardian to return from work.
- b. Its appearance in scenes from the Bill Murray/Scarlett Johansson movie Lost in Translation.
- c. Being the home of one of the busiest Starbucks coffeehouses in the world.
- d. Being the site of a recent PETA Asia-Pacific Lettuce Ladies demonstration.
- e. All of the above.
