Don't venture in during rush hours as the place is packed with commuters rushing all about. during off hours you can check out the layout of the place which is huge with corridors snaking off in all directions. a visit to the platforms is a must esp. to see the bullet trains coming in precisely on time and leaving a...

This is the main railway station in Tokyo and it is huge and busy. There are wonderful shops and restaurants attached to it and I can recommend the Daimaru department store on the ground floor (which opens at 10am) to pick up a Bento Box or delicious sandwiches for your trip. However if you are planning to leave here on... More

Of course it is efficient. The sheer volume of people that are processed from point A to point B in such an organized manner is amazing. And it would be a cardinal sin for a train to not be on time. Right next door to our amazing hotel Tokyo Shangra La.

You come to this place for three reasons only. 1. To catch a train 2. To admire the great architecture of this building 3. Find the ramen street within the basement of the station where 8 of the best ramen restaurants are located right next to each other. Search for the ramen street in trip advisor's things to eat at...

Tokyo station is an absolute crazy place during peak hour! But at the same time it is surrounded by some great food outlets too!

This place has been recently renovated and brought back to his previous grandeur. Beautiful architecture. Lots of shops and very busy. The area in front of the building is being renovated and I believe they are going to have a nice plaza in time for the Olympic games.

Tokyo Station entryroom is a pleasure for the eye. Beware of a "monk". He came to us, gave religious pictures and then asked for money - some tourists before us had given him quite much as small money caused a "curse". He's a fraud after your money, as he zapped to us, was pressing for money urgently and dissapeared from... More

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.
