Tokyo Station Renovation

The grand old train station has been undergoing a lot of changes recently and for good reason: it celebrated its 100-year-anniversary in December 2014 and had to get dressed up nicely. The area around Tokyo Station has also seen renovation recently, the huge ultra-modern structures now standing guard over the classic beauty. The beautiful domes atop the station were destroyed in the bombing of Tokyo during WW2 and only restored to their original appearance in the recent renovation. The beauty of the station is best seen from the West side approaching from the Imperial Palace; the East side has a modern facade.
