The passageway connecting Scramble Square and Hikarie is also built over Meiji-dori, alongside the Ginza Line's Shibuya Station, which straddles Meiji-dori. Every time I walk along this passageway, I feel that it would be more enjoyable if the view of the Ginza Line Shibuya station could be seen from the passageway. Unfortunately, you can't see the platform of Shibuya station from the top of the walkway.
By the way, the area around Shibuya station is complicated. Not only are the underground passages labyrinthine, but the above-ground passages are also difficult to understand. You can get from the Inokashira Line ticket gates to Hikarie all the way along the pedestrian deck by going up and down stairs and turning right and left, but I'm sure there are many people who don't understand.
If you follow the pedestrian deck from the Inokashira Line ticket gates to Hikarie, the last thing you will cross is the connecting walkway in the photo. This connecting passage between Scramble Square and Hikarie has a large glass wall that allows the sunlight to pour in brilliantly. It seems to me that they are trying to disguise the maze-like complicated route they have taken by letting us soak up as much sunlight as possible, but I don't think they have succeeded in disguising it.
