Station was renewed in 2013. Looks profound from outside but once inside, you can enjoy shopping and eating. Several hotels are connected this station directly. Quite useful place to visit.

One of the icon images of Tokyo is the crowded subway cars and commuters getting pushed into the cars. The place to see this first hand is Tokyo Central Railway Station. You haven't seen crowds until you've experienced this.

Tokyo Station is the rail hub of Japan, connected to the subway, regional, and bullet trains and the Narita Airport Express. The station extends for blocks under the streets with many shops and restaurants.

What happens in this train station is an amazing spectacle to observe. There is nothing like it in the US as the closest thing might be Grand Central in NY. And even that falls a bit short in terms of scope of activity. Tokyo Station is in the heart of Tokyo near the Financial District. There are many busy stations... More
