There is a huge underground mall below the station which has an amazing variety of shops. There was even a pokeman shop! The station was very cleaned and well marked. Only claims - couldn't find a trashcan.

We arrived in Tokyo on the Shinkansen with 4 big suitcases. Never once did we feel daunted or lost. The signage is very clear and easy to read and the staff we spoke to were very helpful. The only issue we had, was when purchasing tickets in SOME areas became a little confusing (that's when staff are very helpful).

We arrived at Tokyo Station via JR Bullet Train. We were told by our travel agent to just find the nearest exit and get a taxi to our hotel. We were surprised to learn when we arrived that the train station is actually very easy to navigate and well laid out. Look around as you go through the station at... More

We arrived here on the train from Narita. Not knowing which entrance to take we asked at the information office. The staff were so helpful not only in giving us the information we needed but also sightseeing pamphlets and a piece of paper detailing food allergies for me to fill out. Our exit was on the modern side of the... More

Iconic station in a country dominated by train travel ... I was impressed with the faccade and the train system in Japan as a whole blew me away.

I came with the Shinkansen fro Kyoto and was go to shinjuku in Tokyo, easy to change from Shinkansen to the subway and there are always people that you can ask for advice the stand around the ticket area and speaks really good English. So don't be afraid first time you see the subway map, just go for it.

First time I arrived here, it was so confusing. The station was so big, and really busy with people who wants to go everywhere. There are many signs that can help you. Be ready with the crowd during rush hour. You'll amaze with the number of the people. I really love the building, the architecture is so great. Next time... More

No time to walk around Tokyo city, Tokyo station is everything. From character street to basement food stall, clothing shops, souvenir shops etc. Remember to put your bags or luggages at the locker which is easy to find or there is a baggage service room. Take a look from outside, the Yaesu exit is modern architect while the Marunouchi exit... More
