Shibuya Hikarie – Shibuya’s Newest Building

Posted in Places, Shops by tokyobling on May 4, 2012

Shibuya Hikarie (渋谷ヒカリエ) is the latest of all the new commercial buildings popping up like mushrooms all over Tokyo at the moment. Just days after the new building in Omotesando/Harajuku we have the opening ceremony of Shibuya Hikarie. When I got there it was already packed with people and I could hardly find an empty spot to shoot from so please forgive me for the boring snapshots in this post. I’ll have to go back and get some more of the interiors as well as some night time exteriors! The building is 182.5 meters tall and has 34 floors, most of them commercial or office.

    Which new bldg in Omotesando? Now I’ve got to look up these other mushrooming bldgs! Why can’t we have good design new bldgs in the US? So often it’s sim to late 50s early 60s with touches of 1940s shades. Always. Nowhere is there any semblance of spark. You are so lucky to be there, miss Japan so very much. Came here bcse inspired my Swarovsky sprinkled Lawson conveni on the 11th floor and had to see the rest of the place.

    Thank you for posting.

      Oh yes, that Lawson is quite spectacular! I think I was thinking about the Tokyu Plaza in Harajuku… (^-^;)
