Townscape of Marunouchi from south to north
Marunouchi is one of the most famous business districts in Japan. During the Edo period(1603-1867), in this area there were many feudal lords' mansions. After the great political change with the Meiji period(1868-1912) starting, the Mitsubishi conglomerate bought up this prime land sandwitched between Tokyo station and the moats of the Imperial Palace(the old site of Edo castle) and it was developed as a business district with European style. Mitsubishi 1st building(the photo below) is a 2009 restoration of original one which was once built in 1894 and demolished in 1968. In my tour, A one day tour for the first time visitors to Tokyo, Mitsubishi 1st building is on the route. It is an appropriate rest place of the tour. I would like you to feel both the old and modern aspects of Tokyo. Why don't you join me?
