For the first time in almost half a century, a new station was added to the JR Yamanote Line. Takanawa Gateway Station is located between Shinagawa and Tamachi Stations. This new station is part of a redevelopment project that includes plans to build hotels, offices and apartments, transforming the area into a global hub. Designed by Kuma Kengo (known for his work on the new national stadium), the station combines elements inspired by traditional Japanese design with the latest technology.
