209 ~ 209 / 278ページ
The imperial city of Tokyo had suffered enormous damage in the Great Kanto Earthquake, and reconstruction work progressed, led by the government. A big event in the Minato City area was the Tokyo harbor construction, which gave birth to Hinode, Takeshiba Pier and the Port of Tokyo. Land readjustment projects also progressed, the Atago Tunnel linking Azabu and Shiba Ward coastlines was completed, rows of re-enforced concrete buildings started to be built in Toranomon and Shimbashi etc., creating the appearance of office areas. Restaurants increased around Shimbashi Station, and the Shimbashi, Akasaka and Shibaura red-light districts overcame the earthquake damage to develop further.
