Exploring Tokyo Station: 10 Must-Visit Spots Around the Heart of Tokyo

The Tokyo Station area is known for its fascinating coexistence between magnificent historic buildings and towering, modern skyscrapers. We will show you the area's most famous sightseeing spots, as well as secret sights that should not be missed when touring Tokyo Station, the heart of the Japanese capital.

Café 1894: Starting Your Day in a Modern Café

Café 1894 is located in the restored Mitsubishi Ichigokan, a historic building constructed in 1894 – yes, this is where the café gets its name from. Since April 2010, the historic building that was once a bank now operates as the Mitsubishi Ichigokan Art Museum. The retro atmosphere of this old, beautiful building makes Café 1894 a wonderful place to start your day. With lights that were originally used as gas lamps and glass partitions that were used back when the building was still a bank, it feels like stepping back in time! Reservations are also possible after 6:00 p.m., with the last order being 10:00 p.m. The menu of the café also adapts to the current exhibitions, so look forward to themed dishes and beverages!
Hours: 11:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m. (last order at 10:00 p.m.)
Closed: always open

Kajitsuen Fruit Parlor: Feeling the Freshness of Fruits

Another gourmet spot that makes for a wonderful breakfast, lunch, or coffee break is the fruit parlor Kajitsuen. This delightful café can be found inside the so-called Kitchen Street inside of the massive Tokyo Station.
Our warmest recommendation is the Fruit Parfait (1,188 yen), Kajitsuen's most characteristic menu item. It is made with plenty of fresh, seasonal fruits that are rich in taste and wonderfully convey the flavors of the season.
Besides the famous parfait, look forward to a large variety of reasonably priced sweets and desserts, such as the pancakes with almost 10 kinds of different fruits (1,166 yen) or the fruit punch (918 yen).
Hours: 7:30 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. (last order at 9:30 p.m.)
