Shibuya Area Map & Sightseeing Information

In Gamera 3 (1999), Gamera and several Gyaos birds battled and reduced the Tokyo district of Shibuya to a burning rubble.

In Godzilla x Megaguirus (2001), Megaguirus flooded most of the district. What wasn't flooded was torn apart by sonic blasts when Megaguirus took flight. Fortunately, Shibuya has been rebuilt and the Shibuya Station area is now undergoing redevelopment.

Live Japan has posted an area map and sightseeing information for those who wish to visit the district.

It begins with:
Famous for its dizzyingly busy scramble crossing and its shopping centers, Shibuya is a place where people of all ages can have fun day and night but only if they are willing to brave the agoraphobia-inducing crowds. Most first-time visitors will first stop and say hi to Hachiko, the dog whose love and devotion has been bringing people to tears for almost a century. From a village in the 19th century, Shibuya became one of the most famous Tokyo district. This is especially true among the youth who come to enjoy worldwide renowned fashion department stores, such as the Shibuya 109, located close to the Station. A little further away, along the Dogenzaka area, some of the best nightclubs, restaurants and bars in the city are always attract a diversified clientele.

Shibuya is spotlighted on page 27 of The Monster Movie Fan's Guide To Japan.
