Overview[edit | edit source]
Shibuya is a shopping and fashion hub of Tokyo. Some of its best known landmarks are the Hachiko statue located at the Shibuya Station and the Shibuya 109 building (referred to as the Shibuya 106 building In Tokyo Mirage Sessions). It is also known for its scramble of crosswalks filled with heavy foot traffic.
In Tokyo Mirage Sessions, Shibuya is the largest explorable space in the game, outside of the Idolaspheres, and is home to several prominent sites:
- Hee Ho Mart: A convenience store located in the northeast portion of Shibuya where items can be bought and sold.
- Carabia Jewelry: A jewelry store located in the northwest portion of Shibuya where protective accessories are sold.
- Cafe Seiren: A cafe located in the southeast corner of Shibuya near the Central City area that offers health restoring food and drink. The Idolasphere Illusory Shibuya is located down the street, deeper in the Central City area.
- Shibuya 106: Located at the northern-most point of Shibuya. The Idolasphere Illusory 106 is accessible from here.
- Shibuya Station: The place where Itsuki starts each of the game's intermissions, located at the southern-most part of Shibuya.
- Uzume Lesson Studio: Located just north of Shibuya Station, it is owned and operated by Barry Goodman. Intermissions are brought to an end by entering the building.
Other businesses that line the streets cannot be entered, but can be interacted with at points for the purposes of side quests.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
Shibuya is based on the real life Tokyo ward Shibuya (渋谷). The game features many of its most noteable landmarks such as Shibuya 106, Hachiko Statue, and the Shibuya Crosswalk.
