Shibuya (aJ) is one of the 23 city wards of Tokyo, but often refers to just the popular shopping and entertainment area found around Shibuya Station. In this regard, Shibuya is one of Tokyo's most colorful and busy districts, packed with shopping, dining and nightclubs serving swarms of visitors that come to the district everyday.

Shibuya is a center for youth fashion and culture, and its streets are the birthplace to many of Japan's fashion and entertainment trends. Numerous department stores and shopping malls can be found around the area catering to all types of shoppers. Many of the area's large shopping complexes belong to either Tokyu or Seibu, two competing corporations.

Shibuya's most prominent landmark is the busy intersection in front of the station's Hachiko Exit. The intersection is heavily decorated by neon advertisements and giant video screens and gets flooded by pedestrians each time the lights turn green, making it a popular photo spot.

Shibuya Station and surroundings are currently undergoing major redevelopment, lasting almost two decades. Several new buildings have opened over recent years, including Shibuya Hikarie (in 2012), Shibuya Stream (2018), Shibuya Scramble Square (2019) and Miyashita Park (2020), and more will be opening until works are completed around 2028. In addition, the flow of pedestrian traffic around the station is gradually being improved.
