Tokyo Station (Marunochi )

Tokyo Station is the most time-cherished business district in Tokyo. Giant enterprises, with admirable histories and powerful influence, have emerged here as a jungle of office buildings. Tokyo Station is also the transport hub of Tokyo, from which numerous trains and shinkansen lines connect all corners of Japan. Tokyo Station itself is a historical building and a place of interest. Its north-south axis divides the surrounding areas into Marunouchi on the west and Yaesu on the east. Marunouchi features buildings of historical importance, aesthetic value and ingenious workmanship. A stroll here would inspire new perspectives of Tokyo as antiquity converges with modernity.

Marunouchi OL has become a synonym for elite white-collar and gold-collar workers. The best street view in Marunouchi is from Marunouchi Nakadori Street. Here, the much-celebrated Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum stands out amongst high-rise buildings and the urban landscape. First built in 1894, the building has been well preserved. The café inside the Museum is reminiscent of the ‘good old days in Tokyo’.

Despite its complicated structure, Tokyo Station is well worth some exploration. The underground streets are like a fantasy world. There is the animation figure street, the ramen street, countless fashion brands available, and many other food options. It is the perfect place to pick up a gift as there are all kinds of local specialty gifts (omiyage) available down Tokyo Station’s 1st Street (Tokyo Eki Ichiban Gai).
