This station is like a city in itself. We always seemed to get lost when we took the subway back to the station and tried to find exit for our hotel on Yaesu South exit. We learned that when lost, go to nearest information desk throughout the station. The staff there can speak English and show you a map of... More

The Tokyo Central Railway Station is modern and clean. Currently it's undergoing some construction but it's fairly easy to navigate. Some improvements, however, could include better signage and directions - not all of the signs were easy to follow.

This is a humongous station with different train lines all over the place. It's huge. Tons of restaurants and shopping as well. We had read that the Ippudo restaurant was great, and tried to find it, but couldn't find anyone who knew where it was until finally someone looked it up and said it would take us 1/2 hour to...

This is not my favourite station in Tokyo, but it is the central one. Apparently it is modelled on Central Station in Amsterdam, but my goodness, it is much cleaner! It is handy if you are visiting the Imperial Palace.

Just double check the train, departure time and gate. Gets a little confusing. Since departure times are close together, if early you may get on the wrong train. Go early and buy lunch before you get on the train.

Large beautiful building on the outside, overwhelming busy on the inside. Hard to tell where to catch what train in what direction, but but the helpful attendants pointed us in the right direction. Lots of omiyage stores - so convenient when catching a tran to meet friends or relatives - brilliant idea!
