A central hub for many JR train lines, this station also services many subway lines as well as the Shinkansen (bullet trains). It is also a vibrant and busy area for shopping, dining and gift purchases.

The building itself is magnificent. It recently underwent a make over, the majority of which is finished now. Apart from being an important transport hub, the station has lots of great shopping and entertainment.
