Established in 1914, Tokyo Station is an iconic Tokyo landmark that remains the inner city's main rail terminal. Located near the districts of Ginza and Akihabara, Tokyo Station is only minutes from the Imperial Palace. With its distinctive red bricks, Tokyo Station is easily recognizable, but many may not know that a veritable "city" is hiding just within. It's entirely possible to spend an entire day inside and never leave the station's walls! Be sure to enjoy a meal at the station's Kitchen Street, a maze of restaurants where you can find everything from standing ramen restaurants, izakaya bars and even luxury sushi establishments. Spend time checking out the cute cartoon classics of Character Street with Hello Kitty and Doraemon shops popular with the kids (and let's be honest, the adults love the cute little characters too!). When your belly starts grumbling again, Ramen Street features eight ramen restaurants featuring food that is way better than it has any right to be in a train station.
