It was a weekday, and while it wasn't terribly crowded, there were a
fair number of people there - and there were generally a few standing at
the ends, but only a few, so no one was blocking the path.  That would
make sense - maybe they had a problem with too many people stopping
there for pictures, so when it's crowded they are strict about it?
Lucky I was able to get there on a weekday I suppose.

Incidentally, for anyone interested in going there, here is the site's
official website and information phone number:

Shops -  11:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Restaurants - 11:00 a.m. - Midnight (last orders 11:00 p.m.)
Cafes - 8:00 a.m. - 11:00 p.m. (last orders 10:00 p.m.)

And... I just found this in the brochure:
"Any commercial photography, media coverage, etc. to be performed on the
premises of Omotesando Hills requires prior authorization from the
Omotesando Hills management office."
