  1. Here's an interesting one I found through the jiji.com link that Bill posted in Gmat's Start of a Holiday Season thread. I saw a small thumbnail of this building, so I had to click :). It was built in 1938 by Tokyo Gas Electric, but the following year that company merged with Hitachi, and the facility was then used to supply electricity to Hitachi Aircraft's Tachikawa engine factory. As you can see in the pictures, it was bombed but not directly hit, apparently between February and April of 1945. It continued to operate as a substation until 1993. The surrounding Metropolitan Higashiyamato Minami Park was established that year, and since 1995 it has been preserved and administered by Higashiyamato City as a historical asset. Nearest station is Tamagawa Jousui on the Seibu Haijima and Tama Monorail lines. various photos: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Hitachi_plane_Tachikawa_transformer_substation http://www.tawatawa.com/densen3w/page017.html http://homepage2.nifty.com/matsuken/sanpo09.htm Japanese wikipedia page: http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E6%97%A7%E6%97%A5%E7%AB%8B%E8%88%AA%E7%A9%BA%E6%A9%9F%E7%AB%8B%E5%B7%9D%E5%B7%A5%E5%A0%B4%E5%A4%89%E9%9B%BB%E6%89%80 google map centered on Metropolitan Higashiyamato Minami Park, with substation at middle left: http://maps.google.co.jp/maps?q=é½ç«æ±å¤§ååå¬åå&hl=ja&ie=UTF8&ll=35.73527,139.424078&spn=0.003758,0.006003&sll=36.5626,136.362305&sspn=59.481591,98.349609&brcurrent=3,0x6018e0e6cf083fe7:0x54f8f0a82f31473c,0&hq=é½ç«æ±å¤§ååå¬åå&t=m&z=18
