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

This was my first visit to Tokyo. I was feeling intimated by having to use the metro given all i have heard about its size and language challenges from friends and reviews. I will say I was very pleasantly surprised. It was easier to navigate than I imagined. What makes it easy are two fax factors. One is good signage.... More

Stay near here for easy transit to most parts of the city. Wherever you stay, you'll likely end up here at some point. When you do, head to the basement shopping center for fun window shopping and fantastic food. I tried two different ramen joints and loved them both.

The station adds for great walking towards the Imperial Palace and in the Marunouchi area. It domiciles a high star hotels in the station building itself or on either side, Yaesu, Marunouchi. A large plaza is under construction that will be the finish point for the Tokyo Marathon.
