I've long thought that the underground passageway leading from Shinjuku Station was complicated, but it seems that this complication has somehow spread to Shibuya on the Yamanote Line. Ever since Shibuya Station on the Tokyu Toyoko Line moved underground, the underground passageways around Shibuya Station have become quite complicated.

Taking the escalator into the underground passage without a map and without knowing what to expect is like stepping into a dungeon in a role-playing game. I wondered if this is how the heroes in the game felt when they entered the dungeon, and took the escalator down. The difference is that in the dungeons of the game world, you can get rich by finding hidden treasures, or if you are unlucky, you can be attacked by the monsters that live there, whereas in the underground labyrinth of Shibuya, there is only a subway ticket gate. Safety and security are our mottoes.

In any case, it is difficult to grasp the entirety of Shibuya's underground passageways. When I see a station staff who probably knows all the passages, I think that he is the brave one.
