Shibuya (渋谷?) is a district in the Jet Set Radio series. The district serves as the main turf for the GG's, and is usually where the game's stories kickoff and conclude at. The Shibuya district is also used as the main location to represent the Jet Set Radio series in crossover titles as well.


The Shibuya district in the Jet Set Radio series so far has been represented via the time of daylight. The district is a bustling location filled with citizens presumably shopping or hanging out in general. The Shibuya district also contains moving vehicles in most areas and usually there is one location sporting a construction zone.

See Shibuya-cho for more specific details.

In Jet Set Radio, Shibuya is represented via the Shibuya-cho district. It serves as the home turf for the GG's, and is where their base of operations, the garage, resides. During the game it holds home to the opening tutorials by Gum and Corn and the general gameplay tutorial as well. Throughout the story Shibuya-cho got taken over by the Love Shockers which prompted the GG's to rush out and take back their territory. Eventually Shibuya-cho gets ran over by the Golden Rhinos to which the GG's also put a stop to.

Jet Set Radio Future[]

In Jet Set Radio Future, Shibuya is represented by four locations: Dogenzaka Hill, Shibuya Terminal, Chuo Street, and Hikage Street. Dogenzaka Hill and Shibuya Terminal serve as home territories for the GG's in this game, and the garage is also adjacent to those areas, while Hikage Street is under control by the Love Shockers. Throughout the story, the GG's will encounter characters such as Beat and Combo in Dogenzaka and the bus terminal and gangs like Poison Jam at Shibuya Terminal and Chuo Street and the Doom Riders at Dogenzaka.

Later on in the story, just like every other area in Tokyo, the Shibuya district gets ransacked by the Noise Tanks and eventually the Golden Rhinos. Shibuya Terminal holds home to the penultimate boss of the game, Zero Beat, and is where Rokkaku Gouji's tower is located.

In the multiplayer mode of the game, the area is represented via two additional locations: Showa Park and the Secondary Stadium of the Rokkaku Expo.
