The original facade of the old 1930s' post office was preserved following various protests against its destruction, led by former LDP Minister of Internal Affairs and Communications, Kunio Hatoyama.
The new building also holds the HQ of the Japan Post Bank and the Kitte shopping plaza - Japan Post's first commercial facility with a host of restaurants, cafes and shops specializing in Japanese crafts.
Other buildings close by Tokyo Central Post Office include the Shin Marunouchi Building, the Marunouchi Building, Tokyo International Forum and Brick Square.
