Restored to 1914 Glory
Tokyo Station has the highest volume of trains passing through it, and it's relatively easy to navigate. The three story station with rotundas and brick facade was completed in 1914 when Japan was expanding its train system. Much of the building was destroyed in an air raid in 1945, but was soon repaired, although not to the same state. In the 2000s, the station was restored to look much like it did in 1914. Some interesting features are the special entrance reserved for the imperial family, plaques commemorating the assassinations of two prime ministers, and some architectural anomalies such as the exterior wall of the post office that is visible inside the concourse. There are great photo spots outside and in the rotundas.
