pay for the fare...awesome-sauce....
The Tokyo Station...very cool station to hang out in...some subway trains can be access here..Tokyo station is the main hub for the JR trains. Lots of places to grab a bite and a little shopping can be
attained here. How to tell where your at....find out what sid you are on. The Yaesu or Marunnouchi side are on the opposite side of each other, with the station in between...
Travel Tip: The subway...Which train to go and to take..that is the question and it is hard...Tokyo station is the main focal point of Tokyo, the minus is getting to the subway train connections...
Use the Ginza Station as the main focal point for the tourist on the go...The Marunouchi line, the Hibiya Line and the Ginza line all come near each other here.
Those three lines can get you to the most tourist main tourist hubs of the city.. On the Hibiya line gets you to the Roppongi station..where you can use the Toei Oedo line..
Think Tokyo Station as a mall, Ground level is Train entrance, lower level is the shops and Subway connectionzs.
