Shibuya, Tokyo, where many people gather every year during Halloween in October. This year, we are calling for refraining from coming to Shibuya during Halloween to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus.
Under these circumstances, KDDI and the Shibuya City Tourism Association announced that they will be able to enjoy the city of Shibuya virtually without actually going to Shibuya during the period from October 26th to October 31st. The specific content is that you can freely explore the virtual space “Virtual Shibuya” that reproduces the city of Shibuya by manipulating your avatar from your smartphone or PC.
In addition, virtual Shibuya will hold online live performances by popular artist Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and comedy live performances using holograms by comedian Wagyu. Details of each live will be announced again.
In addition, prior to each event in Virtual Shibuya, from October 9th, we will hold an event “Netflix Cinema” where you can watch 4 works of the Netflix original animation series on the street .https://www.youtube.com/embed/1huL3qPm9JI
Ken Hasebe, Mayor of Shibuya, commented on this initiative as follows.
“By taking on the challenge of a virtual event of this scale, I would like to send it from Shibuya as one of the model cases for new tourism and events for the new normal era. Please enjoy Halloween in Shibuya from your home this year. “
