Tokyo Station (Tokyo Eki) Tours

star-4.5
10 Reviews
Tokyo Station (Tokyo Eki)
Of all the rail stations in Japan’s capital, Tokyo Station (Tokyo Eki) is the most elegant—the neoclassical design of the station’s red-brick facade is said to have been inspired by Amsterdam Central Station. The station sits near the Imperial Palace grounds in Chiyoda Ward’s Marunouchi business district.

The Basics
Tokyo Station (Tokyo Eki) is Japan’s busiest; it sees more than 3,000 trains and 400,000 passengers pass through it every day. Tokyo Station is served by both Japan Railways—including many Shinkansen (bullet train) high-speed rail lines—and the Marunouchi Line on the Tokyo Metro network. An underground walkway connects passengers to the Mita Line on the Toei underground railway network.

If you’re not taking a train but still want to watch the futuristic-looking bullet trains hurtle past, you can purchase a Platform Ticket, which grants you access to the platforms but not the trains.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Tokyo Station is a must-visit for travelers interested in architecture and transportation.
  • Look out for the commemorative plaques that mark the site of two presidential assassinations.
  • The station has accessible routes and restrooms for wheelchair users and travelers with strollers.
  • Smoking is prohibited inside the station and in the surrounding streets.
  • You can leave your luggage at the JR EAST Travel Service Center at the Marunouchi North Exit.

How to Get There
Served by multiple railway lines, Tokyo Station is easy to get to from anywhere in the city. The station is also a major bus terminus; most buses arrive and depart from the Yaesu Exit on the eastern side of Tokyo Station. The station is a 10-minute walk from the Imperial Palace.

When to Get There

If you want to see Tokyo Station at its busiest, time your visit to coincide with rush hour (early morning or late afternoon), when thousands of commuters squeeze into train carriages. The opening hours of shops and restaurants vary throughout the station.

Around Tokyo Station
Within easy walking distance of the Marunouchi exit of Tokyo Station are Kitte Marunouchi, a shopping and dining hub housed within an old post office; the Mitsubishi Ichigokan museum of Western art; Tokyo International Forum convention and concert center; and the lively Yurakucho, a drinking and dining area that spans a network of small alleys.
Address: 1 Chome-9 Marunouchi, Chiyoda City, Tokyo 100-0005, Japan
