Tokyo Station is a beautiful building, and this is the main train station to go to everywhere in Japan. This time we took Narita Express to the airport, less than one hour and only one station to the airport, really convenient. Please allow more time to find the platform for your train as the station is huge ☺️

The Tokyo Central Railway station is incredibly modern on the inside but once you walk out, it seems like you've taken a step back in time. The architecture is simply amazing and not to be missed. Take a walk around the entire station from the outside and you will be most impressed.

I found the Tokyo Central Railway Station was a good landmark and a place to start my totally unplanned walkabout in downtown Tokyo. Super cool buildings and skyscrapers everywhere and lots of noodle houses and restaurants close by.

Great old exterior. Can't tell that from the inside which is a catacomb. Easy to get lost in. A little bit of everything.

This place is so huge that you can get lost for tourists easily. This railway station is broken into different directions by North, South, East and West. After experiencing the rush hour human traffic, there is no comparison to the human crowd density anywhere. People are always rushing although the food streets in the station is a big relief for...

A very nice walk from the Imperial Palace, in the heart of one of Tokyo's CBD. The building is newly renovated and is worth o visit.
