Recently restored rail station - it is a 'must see' for all rail enthusiast visiting Tokyo. The outside brickwork and roof structure is very impressive.

Thankfully fairly well signposted in English and with English route maps readily available. Also easy access to and Fromm nearby stations - super easy to get to if your hotel is near another (JR) station. Good food options as well.

My hubby and I took my in-laws there. They were in awe. One can get lost in there. There are so many restaurants and stores. There's even an anime cafe and all sorts of character goods section e.g. Hello Kitty, Moony, Peanuts etc. We went shopping for Tokyo Station's 100 year anniversary goods. It was awesome looking at all the... More

Very confusing. Barely manageable. Maybe 50 or 60 exits and entrances. Huge. Very easy to lose your bearings. Please buy the SUICA or PASMO subway pass cards from the counter near the entrance.

Tokyo station has recently been restored to its old glory. The station is big and complex but has English signs all over the place. Step 1 is to figure out which exit you want to use to enter and exit the station. Step 2 is knowing the train you want to take - bullet train, regional JR, Metro. Step 3... More

It is well signed, and you can always asked someone if you are lost. We were worried that there wouldnt been lockers for our bags, thankfully we searched and there were plenty.

For the non Japanese speaking traveler, Tokyo Station was a challenge in the past but with improvements in multi-lingual signage, announcements and the general helpfulness of the Japanese negotiating this multi story transportation center is much easier these days. If you are going to Narita Airport or catching a shinkansen plan ahead by finding out which entrance is most convenient... More

The station is massive, although I used it early in the morning to catch the N'EX train to the airport, so it wasn't crowded when I went. Be sure to know where you're going because it's easy to get turned around. Definitely worth a visit.

The biggest value of Tokyo station is certainly "security". No strange people annoying travellers here. That said, you can find any kind of gourmet restaurants and shops that will make your experience definitively a very pleasant one. You could go theoretically without virtually nothing and buy everything here, from clothing, foodstuffs, gadgets, gifts and all you can think about. You... More
