Shibuya may be well known as a hub of contemporary Japanese pop culture, but it has also played a role in passing down various traditional cultures that are centuries old.
Now in its third year, Shibuya Renaissance is an event that brings together the area under the theme of "Cultures" that range from classical arts to contemporary subcultures. Together, the event presents the allure of Shibuya, with the participants challenged to bring new creativity that will endure for generations to come.
