The front façade of the main Tokyo station is an impressive brick built edifice, which is a nice comparison to all of the glass and concrete surrounding it. Inside apart from the obvious train thing is a great arrangement of shops restaurants and eateries, worth...More

With the city ever being busy, feel free to stop by the central station to get a view of the busy life line of the Tokyo transit. Great place for pictures and being able to relax.

Trains leave on time, station is so clean. Many, many shops and restaurants. Fun to spend some time other than using for transportation!

Very large facility and lots of folks going lots of places in Japan. Staff is helpful but English is quite limited. Be patient. Lots of travel options and once you get the hang of it, it’s easy to follow.

The train ride from Yokota takes us 2.5 hrs to Tokyo Station. The station opens out into a beautiful garden like area with nice views of the old and well preserved train station. It's hard to believe this station is over 100 years old!

I spent several hours walking around this beautiful gothic/deco treat. Everyone is rushing madly, but it it worth taking a look at this great architectural marvel slowly and give yourself time to look at this lovely place from the golden age of travel.

Very big station for train, subway and busses. Although it’s well organized it takes some time to get where you want to go. We were in other Japanese cities before so knew a bit what to expect but I think for newcomers it’ll be confusing...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

There is a small area in the "Shinkansen south transfer" part of the station, but (depending on where the hotel is) it might be better to meet on the western entrance to the station - distinctive with space there. It looks... More
