2016.04.20
The demolition of the old building, which has been underway since June of last year, went smoothly.
Now there is nothing but an empty lot where it once stood. For an empty space of this size to suddenly appear in the center of Tokyo is astonishing.
The new construction will proceed carefully and safely in line with the principle that open communication and following correct procedures is vital no matter what.This months’s slogan is “Take care! 120%!”
A certain tension fills the air as construction is about to begin; neighbors and passersby have not been forgotten.
