This building is worth a visit even if you aren't taking the train from there​. The architecture is beautiful inside and out. You can combine it with a visit to the Imperial Palace and there are nice shops nearby as well.

Tokyo station is one of the major train hubs in the greater metropolitan area. The Shinkansen stops here (as well as in Shinagawa), so you can get onto other trains from the same spot. Logistically it's fairly easy to navigate, thanks to the colour coded and well numbered platform labels and English subtitles. The main train hall is ornate and... More

You're bound to come across Tokyo Station at one point of your Japan trip, especially if you plan to visit the Imperial Palace. Anyway, This is one of the busiest stations they have and probably the one with the nicest building. Lots of shops and stalls inside to keep your eyes entertained while walking.

It's a gigantic station where everything happens underground. It's like a city down there. Great choices of stores, you can almost find anything. It can get a little tricky to find your way around but definitely worth to check it out.

They are getting ready for the Olympics in 2020... so a lot of the station is under renovations. Give yourself extra time to find your way.

The building itself deserves a visit because of its magnificent conditions. You can witness a bit of Tokyo's history here. If you're traveling somewhere from here or just commuting in the metro lines, I would suggest you to take some time to admire it. Grab some snacks to munch on or sit for a while for coffee or something else.... More

This station has a lot of history and boy is it beautiful! I was only stopping by to visit my uncle who flies to Japan for business and had recommended to visit here there were a lot of people taking pictures and it took a while for me to have my turn! So get here early if you don't want... More

I was disappointed that the outside of the station was under construction and barricades could be seen surrounding the area. Photos of the station could not be taken but the station inside itself is very nice. It's filled with shops and restaurants certainly to satisfy your stomach.

So well organised. I purchased bullet train tickets and the man behind the counter in the ticketing office was so helpful, even without English and me not speaking Japanese. He booked me seats near doors so I didn't have to carry my bags into the middle of the train, very thoughtful. And ensured we had enough time between connections.

If you're visiting Tokyo, the largest city in the world, you'll undoubtedly be going through Tokyo Station. So why not get off here and take a look around? The station itself is gorgeous, red brick outside, cool architecture inside and out. It is very big, with all of the JR Trains coming through. This is also where you'll catch the... More
