Tokyo Station has alot to offer not just the public transportation but it is also a shopping center, at around 11am we went out and made our 1st Adventure at Tokyo Station. I’ve heard that Tokyo Station has a underground mall (Yaesu Shopping Mall) is built within Tokyo Station and i think thats really really cool, Japan always amaze me on just a simple things like this one, Japan is a cool place, respectful people but always rushing to go somewhere and i love the feeling of it.
How to get here:
Tokyo Station – Yaesu Exit
Before we start our day roming around Tokyo Underground mall we got ourselves first some Brunch eating Fresh Onigiri! Freshly made Onigiri and its pretty cheap for just around 200 yen and up depending on the selection you choose.
The one thing i wanted to visit here is the small pokemon center, but you will be surprised on how many stores are here on the underground mall. Yes i became a little kid again because of this store.
When you get hungry just go up one stairs or go down 1 floor for the resturants, here’s a map of restaurant per floor.

We had our lunch at a restaurant that i forgot the name because its in Japanese and they serve bento type or set meal type of food and its pretty delicious and on the budget.
After that we decided to go to Takeshita Street in Harajuku this is where you go when you want to get new clothes or see new fashion trends, the colorful streets and trendy shops of Takeshita Dori is why it is always jammed packed no matter what time of day you go, this is a must-go when you visit japan lets find out why.
