The bronze statue of the faithful dog “Hachiko” and the bustling multi-street intersection located in front of Shibuya station are famous worldwide.

The Harajuku/Omotesando area is known as the city of fashion, while the office district area composed of the Shinjuku, Yoyogi and Sendagaya areas are close by.

And located just a short distance away are the shopping areas of "Daikanyama" and "Ebisu Garden Place", and the art and science areas of "Bunkamura", "Noh " (a tradition Japanese play), "Tokyu Theatre Orb", "NHK Studio Park", "Tobacco & Salt Museum" and "Electric Power Pavilion".

Young singles move to Shibuya-ku motivated by the idea "I've always wanted to live there once". However, they tend to move away rather quickly once they realize the high cost of living.

Currently, construction of the new high rise station building is being promoted as a redevelopment plan for the area. The building is scheduled to open in 2020 as the tallest station building in Tokyo, reaching 230 meters with 46 floors of commercial offices and facilities. The area around Shibuya Station will be reborn as a new town with many other large-scale development projects scheduled in near future.
