Tokyo Station (Tokyo Eki)

1 Chome-9 Marunouchi, Chiyoda City, Tokyo, 100-0005

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.

Enjoy local Tokyo E-bike tour, 3 hours of ride starts near Tokyo Station
Take-San was a wonderful guide. He made sure we were comfortable with the e-bikes and gave us safety lesson on Japanese cycling etiquette prior to the tour. We hit many city highlights. I enjoyed riding through the back streets and seeing neighborhoods I would never have otherwise seen.
