A place to explore the possibilities of new, Shibuya-like creations

In an exceptional location directly connected to a giant terminal station that sees three million people come and go each day, we explore the potential of new creations that are generated through interactions typical of Shibuya—a place where large crowds of people come together in the hustle and bustle of the city. Here on the 8th floor of Shibuya Hikarie, 8/ functions as a creative space that shares its DNA with the Shibuya Tokyu Bunka Kaikan, which previously stood on this site.

Keywords Representing the Intent of 8/

Those who come together at 8/ carry out their work and activities with these keywords in mind.

1. Shibuya-like Creative Vibes A style that creates a fresh atmosphere through the fusion of a multitude of creations, rather than focussing on developing prominent leaders.
2. Building on Concepts We strive to create a space that can be used continuously by everyone and become an essential part of the daily lives of creators.
3. Curation We will curate each and every project held on this floor to ensure that they fit with the times.
4. Exchanging Ideas We help creators with a wealth of ideas to meet and interact. We put a great deal of thought into creating a space that enables people to come together.
5. Community We prize the connections between people, and strive to create a space where people feel free to bring along their friends and colleagues.
6. Editing We don’t simply put information on display; we aim to present a new vision made possible by the unique opportunities for creative editing available on this floor.
7. Making Concepts a Reality We make it our goal to ensure that no concept gets left behind at the drawing board, and to develop them until they are tangible and saleable.
8. Influencing We encourage exchange between visitors of all ages and generations, drawn by the idea of constantly nurturing and influencing people.
