Tokyo Station

Tokyo Station is one of the main stations in Tokyo. It is located just in front of the Imperial Palace and it is in the real center of Tokyo, in the middle of Ginza, Nihonbashi, Otemachi. The station was finished in 1914 and for some scholars, it was built to look after Amsterdam Central Station. In my opinion, they look pretty similar.

Until recently, the station facade was under renovation and could not be seen properly. This Sunday, before the Setsubun event and party I told you about yesterday, we went for lunch in Otemachi area and could see the station front from a nice view point. Apparently, the works finished recently, so we were pretty lucky to get this nice view over the station :)
