Tokyo Station

I had a meeting with somebody outside of Tokyo Station today. It was the first time I’ve been outside the Marunouchi exit of Tokyo station in a very long time. It’s quite impressive.

We met at a coffee shop at the Shin Marunouchi building. I didn’t bother taking a picture of that. It’s a pretty boring building.

But Tokyo Station’s Marunouchi entrance is a real landmark. It was built in 1914 and has quite and interesting history. You can read more about it here.

Strange “festival” by my station

It’s not often I’m completely stumped after all these years, but I have absolutely no idea what this “Shinkoiwa eki hiro festival” is going on by my station right now. A couple of photos followed by a very short video.

I looked for a minute and then just shook my head and headed for my bus.
