a famous meeting place at Nagoya Station
Nagoya Station area is called "Meieki". Compared with Tokyo, there are very few skyscrapers here. This area is gradually redeveloped. First , Central Towers of the JR Nagoya station building was build in 1999. Midland Square, Toyota-Mainichi Building opened in March 2007. A historical Dainagoya building started rebuilding in 2012. My old friend told Nagoya station area hasn't changed so much for 20 years. I think one of the reasons is the existence of a huge underground shopping center under the ground. Without traffic or bad weather, you will enjoy shopping at this underground shopping center. "Towers Lights" of Central Towers, Christmas illumination starts every November. I don't know if this illumination will starts or not in 2012, because there are a large-scale road work at Nagoya station square.
Well several years have passed since the redevelopment. Dainagoya building and JP Tower Nagoya were completed in November 2015. JR Gate Tower will be completed in 2017. So I felt Nagoya station area has changed a little.
