Back in Full Glory. The renovated Tokyo Central Post Office in the Marunouchi 丸の内 district in Tokyo Japan

The Tokyo Central Post Office resumed operations in July 2012 in a high-rise built on the site of its former historical building in the Marunouchi district. Located on the first floor of the 38-story JP Tower, the post office was open for the first time in four years at a site across the street from JR Tokyo Station. Part of the historical building, which was completed in 1931, has been preserved in the JP Tower. The new building also houses the main office of Japan Post Bank Co.

 

At a ceremony marking the reopening, Japan Post Network President Akira Nagatomi said he "is confident that customers will find it more convenient to visit the new post office, [which is] connected to Tokyo Station." Japan Post Bank Chairman Shigeo Kawa said the company hopes to improve its services by listening to the views of many customers. The opening of the entire JP Tower, which will include shops and conference facilities, is scheduled for spring 2013. (Source: yomiuri.co.jp)
