A general view of Harajuku Station on June 10, 2016, Tokyo, Japan. East Japan Railway Co. announced on June 8 plans to rebuild the almost century-old Harajuku Station with the project set to be completed in time for the 2020 Olympic Games. The current wooden structure is believed to be the oldest wooden station building in Tokyo and was build in 1924 with an European architectural style, and the new station will be larger with an extra platform and a new gate on the west side. It has not yet been decided if the old structure will also be preserved as part of the project. JR East also plans to reform Chuo-Sobu Line's Sendagaya and Shinanomachi  stations in time for the 2020 Games at a total cost of 250 billion yen (2.3 billion USD) for the whole project.
