Shintora-dori avenue, which connects the Tokyo districts of Shinbashi and Toranomon, is set to be transformed into a fashionable area lined with open-air cafes in time for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics. The Tokyo metropolitan government is expected to complete the first stage of the work, reconstructing the sidewalk, by the end of this month. The Toranomon Hills high-rise complex nearby opened two years ago, but development of the area between Shinbashi and Toranomon had been neglected.
