Beautiful, so open. Because of the vast space, AT NIGHT, it doesn’t feel like you’re in the middle of Tokyo! During the day, be prepared for packs of people. The area swarms during peak hours, but late at night, it’s remarkably serene. I love this...More

This building is really just a shell for the railway. All of the action is below ground. Its a wonderful place of shops, restaurants, and people watching.

If you’re between Ginza and Imperial Palace, it’s good to watch quickly the station which could be interesting.

Tokyo Station is quite a building that merges shopping, dining and traveling all together under one massive complex. Facing towards the Imperial Palace is the best views of its brick façade dating from the early 1900s. It was renovated and the interesting details about how...More

Check out the station during the day to get the full effect of the old-world feel of this station. We were there at night, and missed seeing the beauty of this structure. Given that this was our first foray into Tokyo, we were more overwhelmed...More

Once you work out the rail network and ticketing the next challenge is getting out at the correct exit. Generally speaking the yellow signs are exits with English also eg "east exit". The struggle we had was working out which direction was which as it...More

In addition to classic old architecture on the outside, the underground shopping and restaurant streets are an awesome place to visit. On one visit we also just happened upon a display of the imperial horse guard coming to collect and escort the visiting Sultan of...More

A beautiful historic building housing shops, cafes, information and of course trains! At first seems overwhelming and chaotic but with a bit of time and looking out for signs (which fortunately for us have English versions) we found great. The staff are also very helpful.

A major station in the heart of the city. Lovely architecture, plenty of shops and restaurants. Worth a visit by itself.

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

You should plan to take a call taxi in the morning for your flight and stay towards the South of the city.Among the principal attractions are Egmore Museum,Fort St.George,Marina Beach, San Thome Cathedral, Kapali Temple,Theosophical Society.For food, you have plenty of choice and for reliable inexpensive veg fare Sarvana Bhavan,Woodlands should be ok.

45 mins to 1 hour maximum. With luck ( less traffic) you can reach even faster.
