The main transport hub in the metropolis, Tokyo Station is where most train lines, including the shinkansen, converge. And with direct access to 33 prefectures in the country, it is also often referred to as the epicentre of Japan.
The station itself is huge, almost as big as Hibiya Park, and it's roughly divided into two sides: Marunouchi and Yaesu. The former is fronted by a majestic red-brick building, whose iconic architecture is a prominent reminder of the country's modernisation era in the early 20th century.
Whether you're here to explore the station's cavernous interior or to catch a train to your next destination, here are the 30 best restaurants, cafés, bars, galleries and souvenir shops to check out while you're here.
