120820-0022 - Shinbashi Station


Tokyo Meiji 1900s Unknown
View on Shinbashi (also Shimbashi) Station in Tokyo from Ginza. The canal is the Sanjukkenhorikawa (三十間堀川). In 1953 (Showa 27), it was filled in and it has now completely vanished.

Designed by American architect Richard P. Bridgens (1819-1891), Shinbashi was the original terminus of Japan’s first railway, the Tokaido Main Line, connecting Yokohama with Tokyo. It was opened on October 10, 1872 (Meiji 5) and named Shinbashi Teishajo.

In 1914 (Taisho 3), the station was demolished to make way for a goods yard named Shiodome Station. Shiodome Station closed in 1986 (Showa 61) and in 2003 (Heisei 15) a reconstruction of the original Shimbashi Station was completed.
