Travelers who’ve visited Tokyo‘s Shibuya Station will know how massive it is: it houses eight different train and subway lines run by three different companies, spanning several city blocks and all interconnected via long tunnels. That much real estate provides the perfect canvas for murals, and that’s exactly what two of Japan’s biggest anime and manga publishers did.
Kodansha and Shueisha, which publishes Weekly Shonen Magazine and Weekly Shonen Jump, have been given a 30-meter (98-foot) wall running along the Tokyo Metro section of the station, which they decorated with artwork featuring some of the most prominent anime and manga characters. Dotted across a series of high school-themed backdrops, the most notable characters include Naruto and Sasuke from Naruto, Levi and Connie from Attack on Titan, and All Might and Izuku from My Hero Academia.
For a closer look at the entire mural, head to the gallery above — or better yet, book a trip to Tokyo and see it in person. The mural is positioned just inside the 7A entrance/exit of Shibuya Station only for a limited time.
For more anime and manga news, there’s a Naruto theme park currently open in Japan.
