Tokyo Station is a very large! It can be intimidating because of the size and different entrances, but JR Staff is really helpful! Also provides a multitude of shopping and dinning options. It can be very crowded at certain times. But using the JR Rail System with a JR Pass is great to get around Tokyo (Local) or to other... More

It was very timely visit for me as the station was open 100 years ago and there was an exhibition at the station gallery. The old facade and dome ceiling are preserved so well for this super-busy train station. I'd say the rail system in Japan is superior than any other country and Tokyo Station is the mother of all...

Clean, fast and convenient. Recommend a Suica card if you are going to be there for more than a few days - pays for trains, and you can use it as many stores for snacks, etc.

The station has many restaurants, convenience stores, and shops. It is convenient for a visitor to get by with the necessities. The only dislike is the station is very crowded, just like any big city stations in Japan.

This station is huge with a tremendous amount of shops and restaurants on the lower levels.Very easy to find your way around as all signs in Japanese and English. A must visit is the store Diamuru, on the lower floors the cake/confectionery dept is fantastic.

I was in the rough vicinity as I'd been walking the Imperial Palace East Gardens and so I decided to walk over and take a look at the historic Tokyo Central Railway Station. On approach it is a Grand building that's for sure with its stunning Renaissance-style red-brick work, stone framed arched windows, turrets and domed roof, however when you... More

Tokyo station - maze of shops and restaurants and so many train lines and platforms. Amazing place but it is very easy to get lost in there!

Staying in Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi

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.
