5 popular, mostly affordable restaurants inside Tokyo Station

Tokyo Station

Tokyo station is actually a great gourmet spot! Looking to try good food there? Then you might want to start with one of these five places that are highly praised by locals.

Feel free to follow favy!


Tokyo Station is one of the biggest in the metropolis, and it abounds in restaurants. One spot you should head to if you're a ramen lover is the Tokyo Station Ramen Street. The place is a collection of eight top tier ramen joints among which there is Rokurinsha, Tokyo Station's king of tsukemen (dipping noodles). The thick chewy noodles are served cool. You dip them in the rich soup made of fish, pork and chicken stock.

People report seeing lines of up to 40 people waiting to get inside, so better avoid peak hours!

If you get discouraged by the wait time, a good alternative is simply to try any other ramen joint on Ramen Street. The others aren't as famous as this one but none of them are bad. Far from it!


For a different kind of noodle dish, try this soba (buckwheat noodles) restaurant. Tamejiro serves exquisite duck soup soba. The broth is creamy, super tasty yet not too heavy. You can have the soba served separately as dipping noodles. This restaurant is about ¥1,000.

Erick South

There are lots of pretty good Indian restaurants in Japan and among them, Erick South really stands out. It specializes in south Indian cuisine. You'll love their curries that are either plant-based, made from fish or meat. Everything is so flavourful, and the combination of spices in spot on. No flavour enhancers are used, just good, fresh natural ingredients. Expect to pay from ¥1,000 to ¥2,000.

Mihashi Tokyo Station Location

This retro-style cafe is an icon of Tokyo. The very first shop opened in 1951 and it now has eight locations in total, including this one at Tokyo Station. You should try their traditional desserts called 'anmitsu' made of ice cream, fruits, adzuki sweet beans and mochi balls. It is their claim to fame and why the brand has stayed so popular throughout the years. You get it served with a cup of green tea.

Another good traditional dessert to have on a hot summer day is their matcha kakigori (shaved ice) made with green tea from the famous Uji region of Kyoto. Prices here are about ¥500 to ¥1,000.


Sembikiya is one of the most reputable high-end fruit parlours in Japan. You should try their gorgeous fruit parfaits made from the top quality domestic fruits. The menu changes according to what is in season. Be warned that these are not cheap at about ¥2,300 per fruit parfait! But there are some cheaper options too for ¥1,000 or less. Another popular item that is very Japanese is their fruit sandwiches filled with light whipped cream and seasonal fruits.
