Shibuya 109 Department Store

A popular department store targeting the early-30s female consumer in Shibuya, Japan.

It is now operated by the Miura group.
The name of the building, 109, is a form of word play (goroawase, specifically numerical substitution) and is taken from the Japanese characters tō (meaning 10) and kyū (9) as in Tōkyū.


Shibuya 109 Department Store was removed from the keyboard in iOS 5.

Emoji History The emoji code/ image log of changes.

  1. This emoji was part of the proprietary / non-standardized emoji set first introduced by Japanese carriers like Softbank. These emojis became part of the Apple iPhone starting in iOS 2.2 as an unlockable feature on handsets sold in English speaking countries.
  2. This emoji code was left out of iOS 5.1 when emoji codes on Apple devices transitioned from the proprietary / non-standard Softbank code set to the Unicode standardized code set. We believe the reason for this loss is because no single Unicode character was ever created to represent the Shibuya Mall in all of it's glory.
