The crossing experience used to be one of the more memorable on my visits to Tokyo, especially at night. The blazing neon signs, the giant video screens and of course the sea of people swarming in all directions once the traffic comes to a halt. But the true centerpiece of the experience has always been the fantastic imagery displayed across the entire facade of the Q-front (Tsutaya) building, made famous by the 'walking dinosaur' scene in the movie Lost in Translation. Unfortunately it appears that this screen has been shut down, if not removed entirely. They are now displaying simple static billboard advertising in its place. This is a shame and it takes away so much from the experience, it was truly an assault to the senses.
