The building that is the central railway station in Tokyo is beautiful and worth seeing all by itself. It is kind of intimidating with all of the traffic, so use the below steps to self-train on how to use the mass transit system. SELF-TRAINING for...More

If you love the energy of Grand Central Station, don't miss this. Tons of great eateries of all kinds, including a great vegan spot called T's Tan Tan (you have to buy a 140¥ platform access ticket if you're not coming to/from a train already)....More

Looked very European with high ceiling and gorgeous tinted coloured glass windows. Connected to various buildings also which made walking bearable during hot or wet seasons.

Head to the Central Exit leading to the Marunouchi Business District in the night, and you will be treated to a beautiful night view of the Tokyo station. The huge open area in front of the station is a fantastic spot for taking photos. After...More

Food everywhere. Grocery store in the basement. Leave time in your schedule to check out the kiosks and stores.

An excellent and easy rail system. Great and convenient way to get around. Very clean and prompt. The shopping underground is some of the best you must try the food.

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

T's Tan Tan, very good vegetarian sit-down restaurant, opens at 7am. Follow signs for the Keiyo Line tracks. There is no single 'food court.' Food is all over the station. There is a small fee to enter the station if you... More
