Tokyo Central Railway Station Chiyoda, Japan 

With over 3,000 trains zooming in and out each day, including the Shinkansen, chances are good you’ll be among the 400,000 daily visitors to Tokyo Central Railway Station. Renovated and expanded to celebrate its 100th birthday in 2014, architect Tatsuno Kingo’s gabled masterpiece is looking good, it’s red brick exterior clean and crisp, its magnificent domes restored to perfection (don’t forget to look up when you’re inside). Leave time to visit the vast network of food and shopping arcades in the basement, ideal for grabbing a bentō boxed lunch (and a memento) before hopping on the train.
