Walk upon the Tracks in Log Road Daikanyama

Parks Trains Tokyo Shibuya

In 2015, a large retail town called Log Road Daikanyama opened along the narrow, elongated space where train tracks once ran. A sloping, elevated walking path snakes through the space, which is made up of five retail buildings, scattered with terraces and benches. Ample amounts of greenery makes you feel like you’re walking through a park. The space was designed by architect Shin Ohori. Ohori worked with Yoko Shibata, who helped refine the concept and come up with the logos, signage and identity. Ohori explains they wanted to create a space that would grow with the Daikanyama neighborhood, rather than making a fancy, shiny splash at the beginning and the fading away from there.
