Greetings from the Mayor of Shibuya

Ken HasebeThank you for visiting our website. I am Ken HASEBE, Mayor of Shibuya City.

Shibuya City has developed as a centre of culture and arts, and also preserved plenty of greenery which residents and tourists can enjoy. There are many embassies in the city and more than 10,000 foreigners are living as residents.

In 2016, we established a new concept for future “Shibuya―turning difference into strength”, which aims to become a matured international city such as London, Paris and New York.

Through this website, you can find information about our administrative services as well as useful facilities for various purposes. We are also providing seasonal information in “City News SHIBUYA”, which is updated bimonthly.

I hope this website will help to enrich your life in Shibuya.
