Historic Tokyo building from the early 20th century

More than a hub, Tokyo station is rich with history surpassing its existence for over a century. The station serves an average of half a million people each day, making it one of the busiest stations in the world!

A flamboyant renovation for the station

In the 1980s, a project to replace its sublime facade was initiated but quickly abandoned given the opposition movements that had emerged at the time. Instead, a project to preserve and renovate the historic monument was launched. It was in 2007 that the renovation of the station began and was completed in 2012. Upon completion, the station regained its former splendor, as well as its third level and its domes.

Prestigious station whose surname is identical to the capital of the country, Tokyo-eki is not limited to a vast railway hub, it is a legend that survived an earthquake, bombings, and witnessed two world wars, two Olympic Games, and the launch of the first high-speed trains in the world!
