SHIBUYA SCRAMBLE SQUARE - Welcome to Neo-Shibuya
SHIBUYA SCRAMBLE SQUARE, a 230-meter tower overlooking the famous Shibuya Scramble Crossing, opened November 1, 2019. The building of the structure started in 2014 and it was designed to embody the future of Shibuya, a dynamic, international, and ever-changing city.
Floors B2 to 16 have shops and restaurants that offer the latest trends in terms of fashion, lifestyle and dining in Tokyo. Floors 17 to 45 are occupied by offices of various companies.
Of particular interest to international visitors is SHIBUYA SKY, an observatory offering a 360-degree view over Tokyo along with interactive exhibitions that stimulate one's curiosity and imagination.
SHIBUYA SKY - Feel the Pulse of the City with All Five Senses
SHIBUYA SKY consists of three zones: SKY GATE - the entrance located on the 14F, SKY STAGE - the outdoor observation area on the rooftop (46F), and SKY GALLERY, and indoor observation and exhibition area (46F).
SKY GATE - Start your Visit on the 14F
The ticket office for SHIBUYA SKY is located on the 14F of SHIBUYA SCRAMBLE SQUARE.
A corridor and an elevator featuring futuristic installations guide you to the 45F, the entrance to the rooftop observatory.
SKY STAGE - View the Shibuya Scramble Crossing from the Highest Point!
The SKY STAGE (46F) offers an unobstructed 360-degree view of Tokyo. From here, visitors can see other major Tokyo landmarks such as the New National Stadium, Shinjuku, Tokyo Tower, Roppongi Hills, TOKYO SKYTREE, Tokyo Bay, and more! There's even a special spot to view and photograph Mt. Fuji from.
One of the corners overlooks the Shibuya Scramble Crossing. The entire viewing experience is thrilling and lets you feel the dynamism and energy of Shibuya.
The observatory is spacious, offering places to sit while enjoying the view. There are even comfortable hammocks for those who wish to relax and view the sky for a while.
The SKY STAGE changes dramatically at night, featuring light installations that offer a completely new experience of the Tokyo nightview.
The view of Tokyo by night, especially the vibrant Shibuya, is an attraction in itself. The SKY STAGE takes it to another level, making the visitors realize they are a part of this stunning dynamic scenery.
SKY GALLERY - Discover Shibuya through Interactive Art Exhibitions
The SKY GALLERY is the indoor observation area, offering the same great views of Tokyo along with high-tech art installations. These installations are either interactive or made using statistical data related to Shibuya taken in real time.
By taking a look at these exhibitions, you get to visualize how many people cross the Shibuya Scramble Crossing at that moment, artistic images created by the trains running through the city, or images inspired by the weather forecast.
Souvenir Shop and a Cafe & Bar Lounge
On the same floor with the SKY GALLERY, there is a souvenir shop selling Tokyo-themed items and original goods that make great keepsakes of your visit.
A cafe & bar lounge is also located on this floor, facing the eastern side of Tokyo. It's the ideal place to sit and enjoy the view with a drink or a snack.
