President of Teito Rapid Transit Authority
Yoichi Nagamitsu
The railway in our country opened between Shimbashi and Yokohama on October 14th, 1872. This year, as a wish for the further development of the railway and for raising the public's understanding and interest on the role of the railway, October 14 has been established as "The Railway Day".
This Ginza station opened in 1959, and it is celebrating 60 years this year.
Traditionally, subway stations are functional, but they do not have moisture and individuality on the other hand.
Hence, Teito Rapid Transit Authority recalls the station as a place for people to meet and gather, and is going to create stations wihch have individuality and are suitable for the areas.
Ginza is a city with both good old tradition and contemporary feeling, as such lyrics of "The cityscape is a dream and longing" by Yosui Inoue and "Miserable Ginza's willow trees", and I believe that it will continue to prosper as a place of dispatching dreams, longing and new culture in the future also.
This Ginza station has prospered with such development of Ginza, and this time, with the aim of creating a station suitable for Ginza, we have established an art space "Oasis of Ginza" directed by sound and light, where there is a stained glass "paradise" designed by Mr. Ikuo Hirayama centrally, with springs around it.
We hope that this "Oasis of Ginza" will be used as a place to relax for those in Ginza area, including the customers who use the subway.
Teito Rapid Transit Authority will continue to strive to create new stations that are friendly to people, aiming for a more familiar subway.
