Tokyo Station & Tokyo Tower, Japan


When you are feeling hungry and running out of ideas to find a good place to dine, you can take a ride to Tokyo Station. Tokyo Station is a 100 year old historical building and the busiest station in Japan which connects you to Tokyo Metro Network and Japan Railways (also known as JR for the high speed trains). Tokyo Station is located in the Marunouchi business district of Chiyoda, Tokyo, Japan and also near the Imperial Palace as well as Ginza commercial district. This is a perfect blend between the Western architecture design which is surrounded by the traditional Japanese buildings.

You will be fascinated by the historical building of a 100 year old Tokyo Station. You can take as many photographs of the exterior building of Tokyo Station within the designated areas which are surrounded by guard rails. You can also take photographs of Marunouchi skyscrapers after crossing the main street from Tokyo Station.

Tokyo Station is another recommended place to eat in Tokyo, Japan. You can find various kinds of food served at small restaurants located at Kitchen Street in Tokyo Station. The prices can be either at reasonable costs or expensive, depending on your needs.

And, these are some night photos of Tokyo Tower before heading back to our hotel. Tickets to the main observatory decks of Tokyo Tower and Tokyo Sky Tree can be rather quite expensive if you are on budget trip to Japan. Well, there is an alternative way to visit the observatory deck for free, at the Government buildings such as Observation Deck: Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building at Shinjuku, Tokyo.
