End of Hato Bus Tour: Tokyo Station

It is the main intercity rail terminal in Tokyo, the busiest station in Japan in terms of number of trains per day (over 3,000), and the fifth-busiest in Eastern Japan in terms of passenger throughput.  The main station fa├žade on the western side of the station is brick-built, surviving from the time when the station opened in 1914.

Mom and Nancy also got to experience rush hour on the train.  Luckily we were able to get Mom a seat in the priority seats and Aunt Nancy got to stand by her in the corner.  Those are the best places to be on a crowded train!  Other people were being pushed and squished into the train.  Just when you think there isn't any more room, another 5 people push their way in. :)
