First Avenue Tokyo Station – A Souvenir Heaven Where You Will Spend Lots of Money!

By Wilbur Suen

There are so many districts in Japan which you have to check out. One of them has to be Tokyo station in Marunouchi (丸の内) district, one of Japan’s most prestigious business districts. The buildings around here are beautiful!

Tokyo station used to be the train hub of Tokyo and it still remains one of the major train hubs today.

You get to see lots of local trains and bullet trains (shinkansen) here. To get a good view, here’s a tip: Head over to the rooftop of KITTE building.

Once you are done exploring the ground, it’s time to go underground!

At the basement of Tokyo station, you can find “First Avenue Tokyo Station”. It’s a place you need to check out if you love Ramen, Japanese characters and tidbits.

I personally prefer buying the snacks from the airport because I do not have to include the purchases in the luggage. Of course, if you don’t have the time to shop in airport, Tokyo station is the place to get the stock!

You can find lots of options and choices here and you will really just feel like getting everything. Thank goodness they are not cheap, or else you will really end up buying everything back.
