Limited Foreign Registration Services

Shibuya City Office provided the limited services during the extended hours on Wednesday nights and on two Sundays a month. However, those extended operating hours will be discontinued from June 4th, 2012, as the new Shibuya City Certificate Service Center opens in a new office complex, Shibuya Hikarie, located in front of Shibuya station east exit.
You can obtain a certificate of registered information, proof of personal seal registration, and a certificate of tax payment and taxation at Shibuya City Certificate Service Center.
However, the services such as registration or invalidation of personal seal and registration of new address are only available at Shibuya City Office.
We are sorry for any inconveniences caused by this change and appreciate your understanding.
