Today, we went to see a friend, and the meeting point was near Tôkyô station
Tôkyô station is in Marunouchi district, close to Ginza and Imperial Palace. It’s the main station of the city, with about 3000 trains every day. It’s also the final destination for many Shinkansen, the japanese bullet train.
Build in 1914, the station was destroyed during may 1945 bombing, and rebuild in 1947. Marunouchi side is the oldest one, and it was renovated during five years. Work has ended in october 2012.
Now, the station has recovered its former glory, outside…
Because it’s the JR East maion station, we can see a lot of trains
In all JR station, there is a different little jingle, telling us in which station we are. We can ear it when the train is coming and before the doors are closing.
To finish, a little bit of station platform atmosphere !
