The station is nice. Lots of shops and decent restaurants there. On Saturdays they offer free English speaking tours. Ours left at 10:00 a.m. and there was another at noon. However, I would check online or with a tourist office as the times sometime change....More

Beautiful brick building, a sure contrast to the ultra modern buildings surrounding it. But not just a railway station, it is a mini city with numerous shops and eateries, lots to look at allowing for hours to spend in just this building. Amazing!

With the city ever being busy, feel free to stop by the central station to get a view of the busy life line of the Tokyo transit. Great place for pictures and being able to relax.

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
