Tokyo Station marks its centenary this year. It has been the gateway of Japan since it opened on December 20, 1914. A series of redevelopment projects have shaped it into a large town referred to as “Tokyo Station City”. GranSta, ecute, and the other commercial complexes inside the station have a total of 170 shops, restaurants, and other businesses. A number of other facilities have also been completed in immediate area, including the twin-tower GranTokyo and the GranRoof pedestrian deck, making it a thriving business center. Redevelopment projects in the Maru-no-uchi and Yaesu-Nihonbashi areas respectively west and east of the station have transformed the entire district.
Tokyo Station has been transformed inside and out, extending a warm welcome to foreign travelers. This program focuses on what makes Tokyo Station so special.
