JR Tokyo Station

(c)Yasufumi Nishi

In continuous use for more than 90 years, the Tokyo Station building is the nexus of Japan's railway network. It is also a Tokyo landmark and architectural masterpiece. It was originally built in 1914, in the Gothic Revival style, and was designed by the renowned architect Tatsuno Kingo. Boasting a 335-metre long redbrick facade, it took six and a half years, and the combined efforts of 740,000 workers, to complete. During the war in 1945, it lost its iconic north and south domes, as well as other decorative features, to fire. A preservation and restoration project was launched in 2007 and completed in October 2012, returning the station building to its original appearance.
