Maintaining its old charm mix with trendy inside - hotel is beautiful but handsomely costly... A great place to visit and take train to where-ever including to Narita Airport!

I work near Tokyo Station and even though I pass by it every day I can't get over it. It's a beautiful building that's still undergoing some renovations by the way. There are lots of great restaurants and shops around the station by the way, not to mention the Imperial Palace, so you can make an entire day out of... More

Check out the main shopping street "first avenue" below the train station. Nice varity of shops and restaurants and very convienent for souvenir shopping. All famous brands (pokemon, hello kitty, tamaguchi, etc etc) have a shop. Note that the few ATM's i found only accept credit cards issued by Japanese banks.

This is huge and can be overwhelming. It pays to ask for assistance or take a quick trip to orient yourself prior to having to catch a train. Once you catch on it all makes perfect sense.

So your using it to go somewhere and its impressive because it has to be big to service the people using it. I was glad I got to do it, but I didn't dwell on it. There are a lot more impressive things to see in Japan.

Try and try the food, easy shopping for gifts, from big stores to small niche anime, prints,etc. The hotels have good shopping guide maps so ask for them to move around the Marunouchi area.

I expect that Tokyo Station is listed here because of its history and its architecture that was recently updated. For that, I give it 4 stars and one more star when the bronze roof turns green again. As a station, it is one of my least favorite. Any other major station in Tokyo these days has all the stores and... More
