YOUR HOST

Takeshi WATANABE

Hello there, I’m Takeshi Watanabe. My interests include railroads and trains, going on mini trips, and running marathons. My love of trains often drives me to take photographs of Japan’s various trains and stations, but I especially love to photograph Tokyo Station when it is all lit up. It’s really quite the sight to see! I bake bread at the local supermarket close to my house as my day job, but after learning so much about Tokyo Station from others who share my interests, I decided to start this tour. I kept going deeper and deeper into this fascinating world, and now I think I may know more about Tokyo Station than anyone else! While I may be new at giving tours, I make up for it with passion and knowledge!

WHAT TO EXPECT

What is it about trains that evokes romantic images of adventure from days gone by? They are by no means the fastest mode of transportation anymore, but ask any train lover and they will tell you there’s something undeniably magical about watching the scenery roll by from the window of a train. If you find yourself nodding to the statement above, this is the tour for you! No better place is there to appreciate and learn about the great history of Japanese rails than Tokyo Station. Over 100 years after its original construction, the major hub has recently finished undergoing renovation and proudly shows its magnificent exterior once more, ready to capture the hearts and minds of train enthusiasts. Learn about the hidden secrets of the station with fellow train lover and Tokyo Station expert, Takeru Watanabe. In all, the tour covers a distance of a little over 2 kilometers and lasts for about two to three hours.
