Tokyo station is the main railway station of the city of Tokyo, and the busiest train station in terms of train frequency. It deserves both local and Shinkansen super-express trains. The Tokyo station went under extensive renovations from 2007 to 2012 and attracts a lot of visitors to the newly revamped Marunouchi wing.
The station’s outside is reminiscent of a past and glorious era but don’t be mistaken, the station itself is very modern. Several buildings around the station offer fantastic viewpoints: I will try to cover some of those later. The greatest attraction at Tokyo station is unmistakably the two revamped domes located on each side. Although you might be busy with connecting trains. I strongly suggest you to visit the area at some point during your visit of Japan.
Here’s a short time-lapse video I made of Tokyo station a while ago!
