One of the things that amazed me when I first visited Japan was the crossroads junction. In Japan, the red lights governing the junction for all the directions will flash, an indication for the vehicles to stop. Then all the green men at the junction would flash. After that, the pedestrians would cross the road in the horizontal, vertical, and even diagonal direction. Therefore, one can imagine how busy the intersection area is when the green men are on. I am really amazed at the diagonal crossing because in most cities that I have visited, they do not have that, thus pedestrians have to cross 2 roads to get to the diagonal opposite.
