JR East unveiled a new permanent public art installation outside the east exit of Shinjuku Station. As part of a beautification project for the world’s busiest train station, Lumine Department Store, along with their parent railway company, worked with New York-based Japanese artist Tomokazu Matsuyama, who designed a public plaza for pedestrians that encircles a 25-foot sculpture titled Hanao-san. The new public plaza is located immediately outside the east exit of Shinjuku Station.
