Busy but user friendly

Very busy station, but very user friendly. English is spoken well enough in the ticket office to buy tickets. Google maps actually will tell you what train to take and the times.

You need time to find your way, but once you get used to the system, it is fantastic. You can even get you Louis Vuitton trolley in the official KV store.

There is a nice mall in the basement with lots of places to eat and pass the time. It seems like it is always crowded so get used to seeing lots of people. Most places accept credit cards which is nice.

Besides the fact that it is an extraordinary "hub" that possibilities you go everywhere, it is a beautiful building reconstructed after the second world war. A visit that really worths!

The west side of Tokyo Station is the classic view which has been recently reconstructed. It faces the Imperial Palace and views of the station and from the station are superb. The best view of the station itself is from the Japan Post building called Kitte. If you go up the escalators to the outside balcony you can take excellent... More

I love walking inside the Tokyo station. There are shops and restaurants. It can be a bit intimidating and confusing at the same time as it is huge. Almost like walking across a town to the other side where Department store "Daimaru" awaits you, where you find the best sweets and savory, and many other things.

I looked so hard for this because from photos, i was a big fan of the architecture cause it reminded me of Pre WWII buildings in England, but the old red brick design only makes up 1/8 of the whole station facade. Having said rhat, it was still magnificent to look at. Keep expectations low

The exterior on the Marunouchi Side was modelled after the station in Amsterdam Holland but inside it is massive and very Japanese.Stroll the lowe level for a myriad of small restaurants or just look around at the busy and on time trains that move through this very large station.It is reasonably well signed but you can get lost.

This station is just huge. We came here specifically to find an area nicknamed "Ramen Street" for lunch but it was so much more. Sure, they had amazing ramen but the amount of restaurants and shops to explore was mind boggling. We walked and ate and shopped for about 3 hours and feel like we barely touched the surface of...
