Hello, this is Funun! Today, I would like to introduce you to the capital of Japan, Tokyo Station. There are western style buildings etc. built in the old days. If you want to take pictures, this is a good place to visit. In addition, there are so many stores inside Tokyo Station that it is the best in the world. I will write about that in another article!


It is the departure and arrival station for the Shinkansen, and is overwhelmingly easy to access.

It is also the area where the Japanese emperor lives. Not many people live in it, but it is prospering as a business district.

The charm of Tokyo Station

There was a pigeon in the middle of the Imperial Palace.

One of the few areas where western architecture built in the past still remains. The Imperial Palace is also close by for sightseeing. If you want to have a chic trip, this is a good area to visit. There are also numerous stores around the station.

① Imperial Palace

Part of the Imperial Palace is always open. Free. It is also a rare place where you can see the castle and the building area at the same time. If you are interested in Edo culture, please go and see it.

② Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum

A building built in 1894. The cafe is very nice, but it’s quite crowded so it’s better to go early, like 11 o’clock.

It’s a little expensive, but the atmosphere is good.

③ Tokyo Station

Tokyo Station is registered as an important cultural property, and many people come to take pictures of it. On rainy days, you can take fantastic pictures of Tokyo Station reflected in a puddle.

When you come to the station by Shinkansen, please take a look!

④ Maruzen Tokyo

It is a very large bookstore in Tokyo. I personally like it so much that I often go there. The atmosphere is nice. Feel the Japanese reading culture!

⑤ Restaurant area

In this way, Tokyo Station is more prosperous underground than above ground. There are also many restaurants.

There are a lot of shops in the basement! !! Good Japanese shops are gathered inside and outside the station. There are ekiben, sushi restaurants, etc.

Ramen Street that I love. The most famous ramen shops in Tokyo are gathered here.

Among the restaurants, we recommend “Haneda Market”. It’s a little expensive, but you can eat wonderful fish sent directly from Haneda Airport.

It is located in the basement “GRANSTA”.

These are the sightseeing spots around Tokyo Station! Please go ^^
