Fodor's Review

The work of Kingo Tatsuno, one of Japan's first modern architects, was completed in 1914. Tatsuno modeled his creation on the railway station of Amsterdam. The building lost its original top story in the air raids of 1945, but was promptly repaired. In the late 1990s, a plan to demolish the station was impeded by public outcry. The station has been deepened and tunneled and redesigned any number of times to accommodate new commuter lines, but the lovely old redbrick facade

and dome remain. The highlight is the historic and luxurious Tokyo Station Hotel, on the second and third floors. The area around the station is increasingly popular for dining, shopping, and entertainment.
