You could probably spend a week shopping there and never have to leave. Good food choices too. Daimaru was by far the best department store to shop in and if you don't know what to buy... watch what others are buying and follow suit :)...More

We arrived and departed via the Narita Express to Tokyo Central. People are very willing to help direct you. Check out Ramen Street (it's still within the station) for great food options.

The Japanese know how to travel by train. Super organized and great food and shopping! We used a guide to help us get to the correct platform. Make sure to keep your train tickets as you need to use them on your way out!

Great bit of railway engineering, the old station modelled on Amsterdam Central Stn. Its even bigger than it looks being spread over 4 or 5 levels. The get to the high spead trains (Shinkansen) you'll need to show your tickets twice. For Nagoya/ Osaka/ Kyoto...More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
