Tokyo station is alive with humanity. The station is adequately signed in English to assist international travellers and there are many attendants to help, if further assistance is required. We spent a lot of time with the girls in the JR ticketing office (North Maranouchi entrance) sorting out our JR rail passes, booking trips, and getting advice from their tourist... More

This is the Central station, it is hustling and bustling all the time. Plenty of underground shopping as well.

We were on a short trip to Tokyo and wanted to experience the shinkansen. Managed to get to the station quite easily. Bear in mind that all ticket dispensers are only machines albeit with English instructions. For the shinkansen one needs a train ticket and a platform ticket. Very convenient overall if you are planned and well researched. A few... More

Historic building sorounded by beautiful autumn trees of yellow colour. One of the busiest stations in Japan is relatively quiet in weekends. The magnificent red brick facade and the yellow dome ceiling from Japan's westernising era are well preserved.

To be very fair, I visited Tokyo Central Railway station because on the way to Narita Airport and originally thought not much to do. But in the end, it was much bigger than I thought, very busy, lots to do/see and plenty of stuff to eat. Therefore, if your about to go to Narita Airport or whatever destinations, I would... More

A quick follow-up to my earlier review. We returned to Tokyo after spending time in Shikoku and spent our last week at this hotel. Everything was perfect! We would not stay anywhere else in Tokyo! A big thank you to all the wonderful staff.

Having gone to a lot of train stations in Tokyo, I was scared that this would be another crazy confusing mess (like Shinjuku), however in actuality there was clear signage that led me straight to the NEX! We were able to buy our ticket in the ticket office with no problem, she sat us next to eachother, and it was... More

Really interesting ...great assistance. Easy to sort out. Be patient. The system does work well. Walk through the under world of shops ..christmas lights ...little bit claustrophobic but come out to Diamuru..worth a walk through this store if you like beautiful things.

Restaurants downstairs at Tokyo Station are great in terms of quality of food at affordable prices for central Tokyo. Although this is a busy location, the signage has been upgraded so getting around is now much easier. In terms of the Tokyo Metro it is still the most efficient way to traverse Tokyo and see the major sites and here... More
