Tokyo station is big and you can easily get lost in it. But there signs are adequate for you to finally get to where you are going, do allow yourself some extra time if catching a particular train. Many restaurant options in the underground section that are excellent. Plenty of cafes around for quick business meeting as well. Underground connect... More

It was surprising that Tokyo has an old fashioned railway station building. It was like from other world when thinking modern high buildings in the center. We were guided by locals, so we found the lines easily.

Although Shinjuku is the busiest railway station in Japan ( actually in the world), Tokyo station holds its own, which although smaller appears more organised and modern. And since the Shinkansens which we took to Hiroshima ( and to Kyoto in the past) originate from hereby it is probably a station to which a tourist more often than not will... More

Super helpful staff and English signage also helps navigate what could be a nightmare! Plenty of nearby hotels shops and restaurants. Not speaking Japanese not issue just take a... More

It's a huge train station where it's easy to loose an overview-especially as a foreign visitor to try and get some orientation! Expecting the staff to speak or understand English is asking for a lot !

This building is lovely and it definitely fits the Japanese stereotype of being so big that you could easily get lost for days in it! There are lots of places to eat inside. However, ultimately, it's a train station. Don't go out of your way to visit it.

The tokyo station is the hub for all metro and shinkansen lines. And there are so many tracks and exits you will get lost if you dont read signs. But dont worry the staff are really helpful although their english is not perfect. Read special sign for JR passes and Metro lines.

You don't even have to go inside. The architecture is photo worthy on it's own. And it's right across from the beautiful gardens of Chiyoda and the Imperial Palace.
