    Slightly daunting at first but works like clockwork. Get the PASMO pass at one of the kiosks. It will make your travel a lot easier.

    Soo many people at station. Very easy to get lost. If you have trouble finding places, best to just ask a station attendant before straying too far. Easily one of the busiest stations I have been to.

    Possibly the busiest train station in the world with 10 train lines intersecting here! The Skyscraper District is at the West Exit, while the East Exit is the shopping district. Get a map!

    Get completely lost and confused the first couple times you come lol. There is a JR exchange office here near the east exit. Line is usually way shorter than at the airport.

    This is really an "all thru Tokyo" tip but whenever you see a drink machine throw in a few Yen & try something new. Don't drink the same thing twice. ProTip: blue light = cold drink, red light = hot!

    a 1-day ticket for all three subway lines companies cost 1580 Yen, for two 1000 Yen, for one 700 Yen. see if it is worth it or pay-as-you-go

    Southern terrace entrance is easiest for catching the Narita Express. Save yourself a long walk. Just cross the street from the taxi drop off at south entrance and hook around to the right a bit.

    Busiest train station in the world probably. Know which platform you need to get to in advance if possible to save from getting lost. Hard to find elevators down the the Narita Express platforms.

    One of few JR and metro stations that has a metro plan also in English. It's a well organized maze;)

    If you, stranger here , in hurry , and mistook west gate and east gate , fastest solution is buy cheapest ticket and through the station. So complicated and difficult. Have a nice trip!

    Avoid coming if possible!!! If you HAVE TO come, be really sure of the exit you want and which type of line you are taking (the metro, JR lines, private lines). They're not the same!!!

    Another huge station in Tokyo. It's usual to go to another exit passing a train track. Was confused at first.

    Huge station with lots of lines running through. Can be quite difficult to navigate.

    By the way if your ticket appears to be invalid keep walk through the turnstile as they open anyway as you walk through them.

    EXITS MATTER. Make sure you are exiting at the correct one because once you're out of the train terminals, it becomes harder to cross over to different sides of the station.

    This is the busiest station in Japan. Be careful and dont forget to read the signs. Otherwise you may get lost :p

    Remember to get the exit gate when heading to a destination at a shinjuku stop. This station is huge and can confuse you.

    Going to Narita Intl Airport from this station? Head out of West Exit, and make your way to Bus Stop 23 near Keio Department Store. Ticket costs JPY 3100 for a 90-minute bus ride.

    It was just recently renovated to be 100% underground. So don't trust your Google maps much.
