Translated from Japanese by

As we celebrate the 150th anniversary of the opening of the railway, the statue of Manneken Pis standing on the platform of the Yamanote Line and Keihin Tohoku Line at Hamamatsucho Station celebrates its 70th anniversary. Therefore, we will hold a ceremony to express our gratitude to Manneken Pis, who has been watching the transition of Hamamatsucho Station and the railway for 70 years. In addition, in order to celebrate the 70th anniversary, we will hold events such as a photo exhibition looking back on Manneken Pis so far, a costume exhibition, and hiking from the station. Station improvement work and surrounding development will continue to progress, but Manneken Pis will continue to watch the changes in the city.
