The real-world Shibuya is one of the 23 special wards of central Tokyo, and is famous for its fashion and nightlife. The in-game map is modeled closely after the real-world Shibuya and features many of the same locations and landmarks, though almost all of the location names have been changed. For example:
- 104 corresponds to 109
- Pork City corresponds to Mark City
- Towa Records corresponds to Tower Records
- Shibu-Q corresponds to Q-Tokyo
- AMX corresponds to HMV
- Molco corresponds to Parco
- It is possible that Shibuya will appear in a future Kingdom Hearts game as it is hinted at the end of Sora's 2nd visit in Traverse Town in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance.
- Confirmed in "Yozora," the secret ending of Kingdom Hearts III. Sora is seen waking up in Shibuya, with 104 in the background.
