The Story of Tokyo Port Reclamation, 1985-1995

Tokyo Port is a small port with a depth of 2 to 4 meters and a shallow sea for the use of small ships. From the end of the Meiji era, the preparation of the port of Tokyo was carried out in the waters of the Inland Department and the necessary economic and industrial activities were carried out in order to grow as a metropolis in Tokyo. A large number of large cargo ships and boats were transported to areas with greater water depth.

In addition, a large number of dredging soil sand was used in the sea at Tokyo Port. A large number of dredging soil sand was generated by digging and cutting the waterway to increase the water depth. in 2008, a total of approximately 5,730 enemy cemeteries were constructed in 4 areas of Chiyoda, Chuo, Seikan and Shinjuku. This is a valuable place for the use of logistics services,  transportation facilities, urban redevelopment, urban facilities, residential, parks and other natural response, such as the use of new streets.

The third reconstruction of the Tokyo Harbor project was completed in 1925, 3 years before the predicted date, and the logistics of the metropolitan area was completed. It was used for the preparation of food, food, wood, building materials, iron and steel, etc. In 1981, the construction of the new seafloor was started, and the fourth harbour renovation project was planned.
