If you are visiting Shibuya for the first time, be sure to stop by at the tourist information center pictured above.
This train car was part of a train called "aogaeru" that ran on the Tama line 60 years ago.
It is open from 10:00 to 18:00.
There is free wi-fi and you can also enjoy stamping a cute stamp of Hachiko.
The staff speak both English and Japanese and there are maps of Shibuya available for free in English, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Italian and Spanish.
The people working here are very kind and can answer all your questions about where to go and what to do in Shibuya.
The information center is air conditioned so it is cool in summer and warm in winter. Some people use it as a meeting spot.
Inside there are pictures showing how Shibuya looked many years ago. You can compare the present Shibuya to the old Shibuya.
You can also learn about the story of Hachi, the faithful dog.
This is a great place to experience both the nostalgia of old Shibuya and the excitement of new Shibuya!
