What You're Not Seeing

I went up to Amu Plaza recently, and suddenly discovered that the Tourist Information Center had been torn down. The footprint next to the escalator walls is barely recognizable as a darker patch on the tiles. I don't have a good photo of the building itself when it was there, so I can't show a "before" and "after." It was very useful for people trying to get bus schedules, and Chinese tourists trying to get directions back to their cruise ships at Dolphin Port (pre-coronavirus outbreak).

The information desk in the main train station underwent renovations for over a month, and I haven't noticed whether that is back open for business or not. Either way, it's kind of a shock to not see the TIC outside anymore, with no explanation for why it was taken down.
