In "Virtual Shibuya", the city of Shibuya is reproduced in detail such as the scrambled intersection in front of Shibuya station, the statue of Hachiko, the faithful dog, and the sign of the building, and it floated in the air until Halloween on the 31st of this month. The city of Shibuya with Halloween specifications, such as pumpkin, which is not found in the actual city, is expressed.
