The new Harajuku Station building in Tokyo's pop-culture hub, which is set to open on March 21 in time for the Tokyo Olympic Games, was unveiled to the media Wednesday by East Japan Railway Co.

The new station facility, which is on the capital's busy Yamanote loop line and located south of the current wooden building, is a two-story structure that straddles the train tracks and has exits facing the Meiji Jingu shrine grounds and the upscale Omotesando avenue, according to JR East.

Glass walls for the concourse allow in plenty of sunlight and give the building a bright, modern feel. Interior work, such as tiled floors, was also being readied.
