You could probably spend a week shopping there and never have to leave. Good food choices too. Daimaru was by far the best department store to shop in and if you don't know what to buy... watch what others are buying and follow suit :)...More

As we traveled to several areas of Japan we went through several central stations. We mostly used the high speed train, however we did use some of the subways here as well as the Narita Express from here. Which ever way you come in, it...More

We arrived and departed via the Narita Express to Tokyo Central. People are very willing to help direct you. Check out Ramen Street (it's still within the station) for great food options.

Crazy, massive place with corridors everywhere. It is all well signposted and follow the signs but be prepared to do a lot of walking. Incredible on Maranouchi side - building and courtyard beautiful and no smoking. Not the busiest station for people, bus has the...More

The Japanese know how to travel by train. Super organized and great food and shopping! We used a guide to help us get to the correct platform. Make sure to keep your train tickets as you need to use them on your way out!

Great bit of railway engineering, the old station modelled on Amsterdam Central Stn. Its even bigger than it looks being spread over 4 or 5 levels. The get to the high spead trains (Shinkansen) you'll need to show your tickets twice. For Nagoya/ Osaka/ Kyoto...More

This is one of the busiest station in Tokyo during the peak hours. If you are going to take the train, try not to go between 8am to 930am or 5.30pm to 630pm. The amount of people is insane. The trains are a challenge as...More

We arrived at this station and exited on the modern side. It does not appear that much goes on apart from Photo ops on the historic side. It is a very large busy station with English and Japanese signs that made it relatively easy for...More

My kids (esp. 8-year old son) wanted to see Shinkansen trains. You can get right onto the platform even if you're not traveling by Shinkansen by purchasing a "platform pass" from the ticketing kiosks. These tickets allow you to pass through the JR and Shinkansen...More

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
