Shibuya 109 to Reopen Following Fire Incident
Temporary Closure Extends Until 22nd for Equipment Restoration
Shibuya 109, a popular shopping destination in Tokyo, is set to resume operations on the 23rd of this month after a brief closure due to a fire incident.
In the early morning of the 16th, a small fire broke out in the building caused by a short circuit in the electrical wiring, which was triggered by leaking water. Fortunately, no injuries were reported, but the fire damaged some of the main electrical equipment, leading to a power cut in certain areas of the establishment.
To ensure the safety of patrons and staff, the company made the responsible decision to temporarily close its doors from the 16th to the 18th for extensive equipment inspection. However, the inspection revealed the need for equipment restoration, which necessitates an extension of the closure until the 22nd. This extra time will allow for proper restoration measures to be taken, guaranteeing a safe and seamless reopening.
The management of Shibuya 109 deeply regrets any inconvenience caused by this unforeseen incident and expresses gratitude for the understanding and support from customers. The utmost priority remains the safety and satisfaction of all individuals within the premises.
Shibuya 109 will resume operations from the 23rd.
A small fire started after 9 am on the 16th due to a short circuit in electrical wiring caused by leaking water, and some of the main electrical equipment was damaged at that time. There was a power cut in part of the building. The company was temporarily closed all day from the 16th to the 18th for equipment inspection, but the temporary closure will be extended until the 22nd for equipment restoration.
There were no injuries caused by the fire.
