      Distinctive and attractive, Marunouchi features unparalleled urban development assets, a cutting-edge infrastructure and lively activities organized by the local community in a vibrant 120-hectare district.

      Urban Development

      A city planning organization established by approximately 100 local leaseholders promotes development of Marunouchi in collaboration with administrative agencies. Private and public sectors work together in Marunouchi to secure a prosperous future and sponsor many local activities and developments not found in other business districts.

      Historic Preservation

      Renovation of Tokyo Station

      The Tokyo Station Marunouchi Building, designated an Important Cultural Property of Japan, recently underwent renovation to restore the station to its pre-war glory. The unused air rights were sold to several local developments to help fund the extensive refurbishment.

      31m height limit

      In the past, Marunouchi buildings were limited to a height of 31 meters. The pedestal-like base of many buildings in Marunouchi is 31 meters, serving as a reminder of the previous orderly skyline.

      Partial preservation of historic buildings

      Marunouchi features many historical buildings. When constructing new buildings, the lower levels often retain historic portions of old buildings — another example of the district’s thoughtful urban planning.


      People make Marunouchi

      Marunouchi’s main street, Marunouchi Nakadori Ave., runs 1.2 kilometers through the middle of Marunouchi.

      ○A pleasant urban space for pedestrians
