Tokyo’s bustling Shibuya district will get a 230-meter high observation deck before the Olympics that could become more famous than its statue of Hachiko the dog or the “scramble crossing” by the train station, plans unveiled by Tokyu Corp. showed Thursday.

“From this observation deck, you can see the busiest crossing in the world. It will be the only such facility where you can feel the dynamism of Shibuya, and we hope that this will be a globally popular spot,” said Takuji Okugi, a section chief for the Shibuya redevelopment project at Tokyu, unveiling images of the facility overlooking the east side of the station.
