Tokyo Central Railway station is Japan's busiest in terms of the number of trains. We took the bullet train back to Tokyo station from Odawara station, after visiting Mount Fuji. While the station is busy, I found nowhere as intimidating as Shinjuku station. Signage is...More

It is very big station with many rail routes. You can get lost easily, but try to follow the sign then you will be safe. Lots of restaurant and shop in the station. Please go outside the station to enjoy nice view of the station.

Think this is the station where we caught the bullet train to Kyoto. Train stations are amazing in Japan as they have food areas the size of shopping malls where you can purchase food for your train rides etc. Very clean

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
