Huge older style building

Not just a train station, underground there is a myriad of shops and eating places. Catch the Bullet train from here. Older style architecture.

This is a large train station in Tokyo where you can get the bullet train and where the Narita express from the airport stops. There are connections here to many subway lines. And, like many Tokyo train stations, it is much more than a stations as there are restaurants and stores here too. I like this station better than Shinjuku... More

Primarily, the location functions as the main train hub for the metro system. You can take bullet trains to and from the airport to this station. There are many restaurants and shops where you can grab lunch or do your food shopping. There are numerous information centers that may help you during your travels although my experiences were very hit... More

If you need information on anything in Tokyo or rail pass or travel to other parts of Japan this is the place to go. It is a beautiful old building with a hotel and not too far to walk to the free (but not so great) tourist bus. There is also a Hop On Hop Off bus stop nearby.

Nice architecture but inside functional is just like normal train / JR station with shops, restaurants. If you happen to pass by that area, it's worthwhile checking ti out. Don't recommend include it in your itinerary only to visit the train station.

Interesting from the outside for its architecture, inside very functional and busy. Renovated recently and with boards that explain the building's history.

Underground station is HUGE! Maps are needed to find your way around the station. Considerable shopping opportunities! There's an Information Center in the Station that's very helpful for lost tourists and visitors, with many agents able to communicate very well in English. No free transfer between JR and city subway. Japanese stand in ques to board trains -- very civilized!... More
