Tokyo station is one of the most peculiar buildings in Tokyo, architechturally speaking. Its red brick walls stand out from the landscape of surrounding it modern glass buildings. Tokyo station building was completed in 1914, and its construction lasted 20 years.
Today, about 3000 trains leave Tokyo station, and over 400,000 people pass through the Tokyo station on a daily basis. It is a main starting point for majority of Shinkansen trans (bullet trains), and hosts about 30 train platforms. Tokyo station is also a major bus terminal (intercity long distant busses).
The underground of Tokyo station is a most complex maze of corridors and shopping alleys. There are hundreds of stores and the passages connect a few Tokyo metro lines, some of them being as far as 2km from the Tokyo station main building.
