The renovated SHIBUYA TSUTAYA, located at the Shibuya scramble crossing, will open on Thursday. Under the theme of “Experience,” the store aims to become a base for disseminating Japanese contents such as animation to the world.

Ten floors from the second basement to the eighth floor above ground have been renovated.

The first floor is a space for limited-time anime and music events, while the second floor houses a Starbucks Coffee shop with approximately 100 seats, where customers can enjoy a cup of coffee with a view of the Scramble Crossing below.

In addition, there is a lounge where visitors can play Pokemon cards and a bookstore with figures of popular works.
