Tokyo Station Walkabout

Tokyo Station

Tokyo Station (東京駅 Tōkyō-eki?) is a railway station in the Marunouchi business district of Chiyoda, Tokyo, Japan, near the Imperial Palace grounds and the Ginza commercial district.
It is the main intercity rail terminal in Tokyo, the busiest station in Japan in terms of number of trains per day (over 3,000), and the fifth-busiest in Eastern Japan in terms of passenger throughput. It is the starting point and terminus for most of Japan’s Shinkansen high-speed rail lines, and is served by many local and regional commuter lines of Japan Railways, as well as the Tokyo Metro network.

Tokyo Tower
Tokyo Tower, it may be starting to lose its luster since the Tokyo Skytree opened last night but Tokyo tower is still very much in my nostalgic heart especially from the J-drama we watched during the early 2000s’.
