According to Time Out Tokyo, IKEA Shibuya will be taking over the first to the seventh floor of the Takagi building in Udagawacho, which was previously occupied by Forever 21.

It will also serve as an extension to IKEA Harajuku where the Shibuya store will focus primarily on urban living and serving sustainable food in its cafe. At the time of writing, there are no updates on whether halal or Muslim-friendly food options will be made available here.
