    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.

    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.

    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.

    Be sure to grab a bento box before jumping on the bullet train. Some bento boxes have auto hearing feature, just pull a string and it goes "poof", magic

    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:)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Between all adjacent buildings, this is a mega terminal building with amazing amount of activities. Shopping includes some funky stuff like anime character stores

    The station is huge and there is construction both inside and outside the building. The directional signage is not always consistent, so TS can be hard for foreigners to navigate.

    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.

    Very friendly staff can give you to where you need to get to if you get lost. Also, grab an ekiben before you hop on a long distance train ride here :)

    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 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.

    Combination of traditional and modern architecture depending on the side you enter. The shops in the basement are great!!

    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 :)

    Huge station! May take about 15 mins to get from one platform to another. Heaps of popular snacks sold at shops here. Nice Abd bustling all the time

    Modern facade on one side and historic the other. Massive station and very hard to navigate through if you just want to get to the other side.

    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 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.

    For railway fans, you can pay Y140 to go up on a platform to watch the Shinkansen trains go by. The ticket is valid for 2 hours

    Worth the extra time to wander around and explore a little. Pastry shops are a must visit! :)

    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

    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 go to everywhere in Japan from here. There's nice food as well.

    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...

    Always use the map of the station, because is very big and if don't know the station can get lost very easy

    Spent an entire rainy day inside Tokyo station. Time well spent. Shopping, food and fun, and not just for tourists.

    Looking for the JR Pass Exchange? It's one row past all the obvious ticket offices, just across from some lockers.

    If you are getting onto the Narita Express, take the elevator next to the Police box at the Marunouchi North exit, then turn right.

    Beautifully conserved station full of history.

    Ticket office is close to the entrance to the gate and there was not a large line (9am, weekday). Signing was sufficient to find your gate.

    Eki stamp is outside the Marunouchi South Gate, under the dome, next to the red mailbox.
