I love this train station! It is easy for English speaking visitors to make their way around the train station and to use the trains. The station is fantastic for shopping and eating.

Great station: everything inside! If you happen to have a JR pass, the amenities, shops, restaurants, etc.. on the inside of the station are much much better!

Tokyo station is a maze, on top of a maze -- full of stores, restaurants, and people -- not to mention the train tracks. You can easily get overwhelmed and confused, but just lean into the labyrinth and enjoy the surprises around every corner. Check out the food floors for super-market food shopping to pack snacks for your hotel or... More

You can take almost all of the transportation in the tokyo station, but you need to have a good sense of direction otherwise you may got lost in the station.

I used this station very frequently during my visit to Japan. This station has lots of excellent shops, toilets are spotless and busy busy busy! Don't forget to go outside and look at the beautiful building that houses the station and the hotel. The station itself is very very clean and well signposted, don't feel intimidated.

do yourself a favour and walk up to the JR line ticket machines and buy a platform pass to sit and watch the Bullet trains! They are simply phenomenal, and if you get lucky you will get the entire fleet side by side across the platforms. You can set your watch by the Tokyo rail, it's never late.
