People tend to check in during these times:
Visit the JR East Travel Service Center, on the Maranouchi North side. They have seating and free wi-fi, and really good travel info in English that other travel centers don't seem to have.
As an american this is all overwhelming. But don't hesitate to ask for help at the gates. Most workers are happy to help :) heads up if your heading otemachi station there is a nice underground path:)
We see you survived the Narita Express. Welcome to the center of the city! The Marunouchi South exit is the best for walking over to the Imperial Palace or down Naka-dori street with its big shops.
Tokyo Character Street and Tokyo Ramen Street are most easily found from Yaesu Central Gate. Character Street is just outside the exit on level B1. For Ramen Street, turn right along the same hall.
Downstairs in B1 there are loads of restaurants and shops. Ramen Street has 8 excellent shops all with different styles. An amazing place to come and satisfy your noodle cravings.
The station closes at night but still people gather to spend the night in order to get very early buses to airports, its safe, specially as there is a police station near the bus terminals.
You can easily, easily, spend an entire day in the dining and shopping regions under the station. They connect several nearby buildings and have literally hundreds of options.
Huge station, you need 10 minutes at least for your transfer plan. And there has a few rest room (toilet)... It takes more than 10 minutes to search them...
This is the belly button of Japan. From here you can connect to all the country in less than a couple of hours using amazing Shinkansen.
It's at least five levels. Avoid arriving during rush hour if you can. There are few tourists pulling their luggage and you are an obstacle to commuters.
You can get down the Narita Express here, but I prefer Shinagawa (品川駅) because of its better communication. It is a classic station, 10 min. walk away from Imperial Palace.
The station is huge and it takes time to find where you want to be if you don't know your way around. The presence of many different lines only confuses more.
This is not a tip, actually. Just wanna give you a heads up. This is the mothership of train stations in Tokyo. It's huge. Good luck on trying to find anything here :)
Between all adjacent buildings, this is a mega terminal building with amazing amount of activities. Shopping includes some funky stuff like anime character stores
There is a New feixe to activate your Japan Rail pass near the Main (nort) entrance. Very helpfull staff. Not crowded.
The Tokyo station itself is an attraction, be sure not to miss it. You're also able to make a short walk to Kitanomaru Park, Imperial Palace.
Big stations' buildings are all massive but Tokyo station is really a town on its own. In addition to normal things, you find ramen street, Tokyo character streets and many other conceptual things
Tokyo station is nice with a lot of thing u can fine. Really impress with the system that japanese develop to convinient of all the passanger. 2 thumb up to japanese to make it all happen.
The best entrance to get to the Narita Express line is the Marunouchi Kita-guchi (丸の内北口) if you're getting to Tokyo station by taxi.
The busiest transit station in an already busy city. For trains, arrive early as lines and long walks can eat into your time
Hello to all my friends passing here! Have a great day! Keep your wits and walk fast would ya! A big kiss! I miss Wonda coffee! Get some from those small shops! Makes my day all the time. :*
If you are getting onto the Narita Express, take the elevator next to the Police box at the Marunouchi North exit, then turn right.
Both JR East and JR Central WiFi are free, you just need to enter your email address once (no confirmation email required)
There's a currency exchange office JR East Service Center on the ground floor north entrance. Very useful
Worth the extra time to wander around and explore a little. Pastry shops are a must visit! :)
Ramen Street downstairs is where it's at. Rokurinsha puts particular love into their product.
You can go to everywhere in Japan from here. There's nice food as well.
This year is 100th year anniversary and its a pleasure to be here! Very nice station.
Looking for the JR Pass Exchange? It's one row past all the obvious ticket offices, just across from some lockers.
This is the Central station of Japan. A beautiful architecture too. The renovation ends in 2012.
Have a look at the map and agree a meeting point. Life gets easier:-)
Navigating in this building becimes easy once you find a map on one of the columns:-)
There are too many exits so you'd better read the guidance carefully
Great food if you want a bento for your upcoming train trip.
Tokyo banana ... Location and season limited edition.
Eki stamp is outside the Marunouchi South Gate, under the dome, next to the red mailbox.
Huge station! Could easily get lost even for Japanese people, but great station!!b
Beautifully conserved station full of history.
My favorite station in Tokyo. It has it all!
Tsukemen for late breakfast (and before the lines) on ramen row then jump on bullet train
Cool underground mall near connected to the station
dun get lost and visit the shopping mall lotsa cool stuff and food
Look at the floor for signage pointing you to the tracks for the Narita Express.
The travel service provided here is useful to tourists!
Nice place to look for some sweet souvenirs and snacks :)
There are no trolleys! Beware if you have a lot of luggage!
Busy but lots to do at the station! Head to ramen street if you're here!
All I can say is follow the signs and platform numbers
Grab a beer for the ride, don't forget a bottle opener!
Great bentos sold here!
