The lobby is designed in old structural building and has a high ceiling. The interior design of the station is usual as other train railway station elsewhere in the country. The information is adequate though one must read twice or several times to understand where you are and the destination you want to go.

The station was very nice and there were many tall buildings enough to cover the sunlight inside. just a few waltk and you'll also see the palace.

It's huge, it's complex, it's crowded, it's confusing, it's got enough English signage to mostly get the tourist through in time. And when you looking very confused, some kind soul will try, sometimes successfully, to help. But I still can't figure out why I need two tickets to get a reserved seat to Narita.

Even if you are not into cavernous, chaotic and crowded railway stations, you will probably end up in Tokyo station. It is a terminus for many of the famous Shinkansen (bullet trains), trains to and from Narita airport, and subway lines. Three important things to remember: first, make sure where you want to go before crossing a ticket gate; secondly,... More

It's easily recognizable from the outside because of it's architecture. The station itself is huge so you can easily get lost. There are also big restaurant and shopping areas underground.

This is a big railway station in the heart of Tokyo. Besides the train station it also features an underground network of shops, cafes, small restaurants and an impressive food store ( for takeaway only) which sells great Japanese and Western food ( salads, seafood, beef, sushi, Western and Japanese sweets ).

Central hub for all the lines. The wayfinder system is in Japanese and English, and very good. BUT, the station is very busy because of the number of trains, people transferring, and the shopping available. Be prepared for lots of foot traffic because it can be overwhelming. I love the stattion because there is also great food and a row... More

Huge station with loads of shops and the popular attraction of Tokyo street ramen. Tokyo station looks much better at night than day. I wish I had brought along my camera tripod for this trip to do night shots.

One of the most interesting things I discovered about this location is it's preparedness for earthquakes. The entire building is built around a seismic isolation design; essentially the buildings foundation and structure has been separated from the land mass. In the event of an earthquake the building is isolated from the earths movements, reducing the impact on the building and... More
