We landed in Narita, took the Narita express to Tokyo Station and a short walk to the hotel. It's an architectural masterpiece, newly restored. We had a standard room - huge for Japan, kingsize bed, nicely appointed - PERFECT. We cleaned up, rested for a bit, and then walked around - some stores, some places to eat, a park -... More

The station is beautiful and huge. We got lost a few times in the station. The staff are friendly and helpful. We tried to walk from the Imperial Palace (west) side to the east side for the Daimaru Mall. The staff said that we had to pay 140 Yens to walk across. However, she told us to take the free... More

Tokyo station is the best place to find beautiful packaged and great tasting bento boxes! They sell them for train travellers but you can come and grab one for a beautiful picnic in the park or just as a treat on the go.

Tokyo Station has a little bit of everything, some history, some shopping (check out character street), some food (check out ramen street), and a whole lot of transit. It's connected underground to several other centers so you could end up spending quite some time in here if you wanted.

Makes Grand Central or Victoria (London) look like imitation train stations. Tokyo CRS is immense. The people press intense. Uniformed attendants VERY helpful & we had little trouble in finding our Shinkansen train to Kobe.

This looks like an English Edwardian station from the outside with a really ornate domed decorated ceiling inside. That is where the similarities end. This is a vast station with a "city" of shops and restaurants underneath, a labryinth of connecting passages to the dozens of lines. It can be a bit daunting but if you research which line and...

A must see in Tokyo. The station is too big and I could hardly find the way from north side to the south.

For the Japanese people, the Tokyo Station marks somewhat special for them. It used be a modern architecture in the 19th century. It's still a landmark of Tokyo, the capital city of the country. I love coming to this place. I'm just amazed by the transportation network combining with the typical Japanese efficiency. What else? The station is well connected... More
