shibuya1000_006:A Symposium This Year. Date:March 13, 2014 (Thursday). Time:18:00 - 20:20. Place:Shibuya Care Community Mitake-no-oka (Shibuya 1-18-9). Admission:Free.

Many cities, not only in Japan but worldwide, have developed around train stations. Yet even though the whole city shares the station, there is often a disconnect between the two sides of the track. It is almost as though there are two cities joined at the station. In Shibuyaユs case, the two sides are Shibuya East and Shibuya West. While the divide is not as radical as the historical global divide between the Orient and the Occident, the two sides of Shibuya station have very different personalities, and it is instructive to explore how the two cultures developed. This is the focus of this yearユs Shibuya1000 symposium.
