In honor of it being 100 years since the opening of the iconic Tokyo Station in Japan, a special anime was created as a tribute to the train station's birthday.

The 'Passive of Time' was commissioned by Tokyo Station City, an entertainment complex that's attached to the station. The short by A-1 Pictures is an emotional one, telling the story of a Japanese woman on a quest to repair a watch that belonged to her father, who used to work at the station, just as his father did. This storyline makes it possible to explore the train station as it has changed over time, serving as a reminder that everyone has a story when they're rushing to get somewhere on a train and it's important to stop and appreciate these little moments.
