Tokyo Station is not Japan’s oldest station nor even its biggest, but it does have the beautifully restored Meiji era station building on the Marunouchi side and it’s undoubtedly important as a terminus for the high speed Shinkansen lines that head north, west and south.

In the period from Christmas to New Year there is usually a light-up of the facade. In past years it has included projection mapping.
