This building has been restored in the last couple of years. It is one of the busiest places in the world. When I came here the first it seemed more easier. The ticket machines had Japanese and English which helped you get around. It can be very difficult getting place and this station is so busy than you can be... More

It's a massive station, chaotic, very busy, and claustrophobic! However, I do like the underground grocery store. There is no wifi but fortunately there are free internet facilities at the Information Office. Study the station map, know before you go!

Recently renovated, Tokyo Central Station is close to Daimaru department store with 2 floors of fresh food, grocery, a fantastic pastry... No issue to find a taxi always available outside.

This is a huge station which for a first time foreign visitor is completely baffling. However, with a bit of patience and asking questions of staff who were unfailingly polite and helpful, we eventually found where to exchange our Japan Rail Pass voucher. Nearly all signs have English as well and once you get the hang of the navigation it's... More

Its size, it's just amazing, you could spend all day here and there would still be more. Tokyo Station is the busiest stations in all of Japan, and possibly all the world.as trains come in and out of this station at almost break-neck speeds. It is multi level and long and seemed to stretch for miles. Many of the signs... More

Take the time to look at the building from outside, walk in and look up at the dome then continue on your travels. Like most subways there is a laberyith of arcades of shopping and cafes. A great central hub to go anywhere around Tokyo or take the Shinkansen

Restoration appears complete. Repainting of the roof vaults, a newly- refurbished Tokyo Station Hotel, seismic isolation design, connections to the major buildings nearby, new signboards, etc convey a new vibrancy to this old attraction still serving its main function - to deliver people to their destinations.

Beautifully restored, take your time through this old building and expect to get lost. Between the many rail lines coming through, the shops and restaurants and department stores all cross-crossing inside the station on multiple levels it's very easy to lose track of where you are. But, it's worth the trip. Every train (not subway) I've ever taken in Japan... More

Neighborhood Profile
Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's also a downtown area with shops that were founded over a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular with anyone looking for a night out.
