Tokyo Station | One day Plan around Tokyo Station

About Tokyo Station

Tokyo station is the largest station in Tokyo. It was built in 1914, however in 1945, the building was destroyed by the war.

The construction of the building was started in April 2007, and in October 2012, Tokyo station regained its elegant appearance.

There are two main exits: Marunouchi exit and Yaesu exit.

Marunouchi exit area has many commercial and office buildings and many workers come and go everyday.

Yaesu exit area, unlike Marunouchi exit area, there are many visitors for sightseeing and places to visit.

▼Imperial Palace

In front of Marunouchi gate, there is a street called Gyoko street.

And as you walk this street straightway, you will find the Imperial Palace. There are so many people walking or jogging in the morning, so if you have a sportswear with you, you can enjoy running in a large park in the middle of Tokyo.

The current Imperial Palace is located on the former site of Edo Castle, a large park area surrounded by massive stone walls in the center of Tokyo, and actually, Japan’s Imperial Family lives there.
