A fantastic station blending the old and new where one can marvel at Japanese efficiency, cleanliness and technological prowess. It's mesmerising to watch the Shinkansen roll in and out, punctual to the second.

It was clean and very organized. It was beautiful and busy but there were a lot of people willing to help, if needed. I had no idea that we were getting off that Station. For a 100 year old building, it looked good. Next time, I will take time to explore the station.

Tokyo Station is VERY LARGE station. It is clean, organized and the employees very helpful. They speak very little English so have your tickets in hand so they can help you if you don't speak Japanese. Departures and arrivals are posted in Japanese and English and the board changes every few seconds. There are plenty of restaurants, everything from specialty... More

Most things are perfectly marked. Please ASK for directions, never assume anything. Everyone there is SO helpful. The Japanese people are so extremely helpful--it will not take long, hopefully, until you find your stuff.

This station is on the large size and has undergone renovation over the past few years & looks good. As well as a major stations, once past the ticket gates there is a good range of food & shopping options. JREast offer free WiFi for foreign visitors but given the size of the building it can be patchy.

The Tokyo rail station is huge by any measuring standard. There are masses of people going in every direction at all times of the day and night. The first thing you need to know when you arrive here from the airport, is which exit to head for so that you end up on the right street, facing in the right... More

This is by far and away the most efficient and busy rail system that I have seen around the world. The trains are spotless and the staff courteous. There is a whole underground city attached to the network as well as a huge department store (Daimaru). Perfectly positioned, the station allows access to all parts of Tokyo via the impeccable...

For a first time visitor the sheer size and crowd can be overwhelming. But it doesn't take long to get around because the signs and people are very helpful. The food is fantastic - Kitchen Street and Ramen Street (near Yaesu exit) is deliciously amazing. We spent hours at the shops. For the kids Characters Street is a must see.... More

The Tokyo Central Train is a beautiful structure and it easy to get to, with plenty shops and eateries for the passengers. The station is gigantic and it is easy to lose your way if you are not careful, however, there is good signage in English. Trains run about every eight minutes, going throughout Tokyo and surrounding cities.
