Tue 2010/12/21 12:33 JST 897730 Views

Pedestrianization is known as "Hokousha Tengoku" [歩行者天国] and usually lasts for a few hours on a weekend before the cars are let loose again. In August 1970 (Showa 45), Hokosha Tengoku started in 4 locations around Tokyo which were Shinjuku, Ikebukuro, Asakusa and Ginza. On the first day in Ginza (pictured above), over 230,000 people came out to enjoy the company of others for a stroll.
