Sony signboard on display outside its building in Ginza on June 17, 2016, Tokyo, Japan. Sony announced plans to tear down its Ginza landmark building and replace it with a park whose concept will be similar to the stairs in New York's Time Square. On Monday, the company said that demolition would start in spring 2017 and be concluded by summer 2018. Sony's public park would then operate until after the Olympic Games in 2020. Kazoo Hirai, President and CEO of Sony, said that after the Games, Sony would construct a new building on the land. The current Sony Building was constructed in 1966 and attracts around 4 million visitors each year. (Photo by Rodrigo Reyes Marin/AFLO)
