Tokyo Station

5 1 Review

With over 3,000 trains passing through every day, Tokyo Station is the busiest station in Japan. It is the fifth-busiest in terms of passengers and even serves as a hub for many regional commuter lines and the Tokyo Metro network. The station covers so much area in fact that it is divided into the Marunouchi and Yaesu sides. 

Overview

Address

1 Chome Marunouchi, Chiyoda City, Tokyo (Map) (Directions)

Highlights

North & South Domes

These two dome entrances on the west Marunouchi side feature part original plaster, reinforced and restored alongside relief work completed in the 2012 renovation. Also look out for the eight eagles underneath the dome, and eight Zodiac animals in the surrounding artwork.

Red Brick Facade

Designed by architect Tatsuno Kingo, the brick exterior of Tokyo Station was a restrained celebration of the Russo-Japanese War’s costly victory. It has survived bombings from 1945 and seen the assassination of two Japanese prime ministers.

Access

Tokyo Station is a main station on the Yamanote Line and easily reached from many lines. For the main brick exterior facade head for the Marunouchi Exit.
