    Go past the gates and up, you'll find more good food options there that's also less crowded before boarding into Shinkansen

    Beautiful station, incredible building. I suggest going to the top floor, where there is a garden and a breathtaking view of the city, and of the architecture of the station too.

    Bus pass may not be needed. We bought 8, never used them and paid ¥200 per pass to get a refund. Taxis are cheap and convenient for 2 or larger parties. Use underground bag storage service, cheaper
