The history of Shibuya Center Gai

Do you know the history of Shibuya Center Gai?

There was a river called Utagawa in Shibuya Center Gai.In Uta-gawa River there is a tributary called Kawakawa River, which is said to have been the stage of chanting “Spring of the Spring.”.The people at that time might have seen a group of flowers, lotus flowers, and a flock of flowers in a brook, as in the lyrics of the stream in the spring of spring.

It is said that a peaceful scenery like a stream flowing into a rural village existed for a while after the war.However, Shibuya was called’ valley’ on the topography, and every time a heavy rain occurred, the water had a flood.

After the war, Shibuya River became a sewer line and used as a sewer trunk line.In 1929, the coastal construction of Shibuya River was promoted, and around 1935 years in 1935, there were restaurants and cafes in the vicinity of Shibuya Station, and there were restaurants and cafes in the area around the Shibuya Station in. 1929.

Since then, the town has been building and modernization since around 1955, and in 1961, the establishment of the Shibuya Center Store was organized by the “Shibuya Center Store Association” in in 1961. 1955.Shibuya was developed into a bright and enjoyable town.And the appearance of young people becomes conspicuous in the town.

In 1964, the public sewerage system was further developed to hold the Tokyo Olympics, and around 1965, Shibuya River disappeared from the surface of the. 1964.

The sight of the city you are seeing now may be a very ordinary view for us living in the modern world, but there is a history in each town.Shibuya has been developing over a long period of time.By knowing the history of the town, you may find a different Shibuya than before.
