“Impressed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012 via mobile

The restored station has just been completed and it is a treasure. It was interesting to see so many native Japanese coming to photo and sketch the station. The logistics of moving people at this place is amazing. Very efficient . It takes a while to figure out how to locate the right information to navigate but it will come to you quickly. People and staff there are very willing to help.

“Now Tokyo Station Hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

Nicely reserved building but always clouded with tourists taking picture. It is now opened as the Tokyo Station Hotel with pricy rooms and expensive coffee.

“Great way to experience the organised chaos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

We took a couple of trains from here. But it's worth visiting just to experience the sheer craziness of this terminus. Thousands and thousands ad thousands of people all going in different directions. But it works!

“Like 1914 all over again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

The restored Tokyo Central Railway Station finally reopened yesterday after five years of construction to return it to the form it was when it was first built in 1914. Destroyed by fire during the war, the domes have been rebuilt and the interior is almost exactly the same as the original. Lovely. So happy that Tokyo is finally starting to take an interesting in these old buildings and finally restore them rather than tear them down. As a train station, Tokyo Station is huge and can be confusing. But follow the signs or ask questions. People are generally helpful and friendly in Tokyo. This station can be hard to navigate even for locals so people are used to answering questions. GO and see the renovations!!! Just beautiful!
