Tokyo Station is one of the busiest stations in Japan, home to many of the JR Lines as well as the Tokaido Shinkansen which runs between Tokyo and Shin-Osaka.
But Tokyo Station isn’t just a simple station. It’s a giant complex packed with many places to eat. Today, we’re going to take a look at 7 places you can eat breakfast at Tokyo Station before departing on your journey.
Fruit Parlor Kajitsuen
Fruit Parlor Kajitsuen can be found in Kitchen Street which is a one-minute walk from the Yaesu North Exit ticket gates of Tokyo Station. As the name suggests, their menu is packed full of fresh fruity food. The breakfast menu has things like pancakes and toast, all of which arrive with fresh fruit. If you like to eat fruit in the morning then this is the place for you.
The popularity of Rokurinsha has never died down ever since it opened on Tokyo Ramen Street in 2009. It has gone on to become a leader in the tsukemen, or dipping noodle industry. The restaurant also serves three types of ramen in the morning. The irresistible soup is nice and light so can be enjoyed even in the early hours.
This izakaya is located in Yaesu Shopping Mall and opens at 7am. They serve 7 different breakfast sets such as fried salmon, pork miso soup, fried eggs, and simmered meat and tofu. Their portions are big and they use great ingredients. If you want a Japanese-style breakfast then check this place out!
Tsukiji Sushi Say
Located in Gransta on floor B1F is Tsukiji Sushi Say, a sushi restaurant that has been around since 1889. Their recommended breakfast meal is sea bream with sesame sauce. The rich sauce replaces the usual soy sauce and covers a sea bream sashimi. It can be eaten as it is or covered with kombu and bonito dashi. Being able to eat fresh fish in the morning is a luxury!
This looks like coffee, but it isn’t. The drink is called ‘Shijimi Expresso’ and is made with clams from Lake Shinji in Shimane Prefecture together with flavoursome miso paste and served in an espresso cup. You get a small 70ml serving.
Vegan food is hard to come by in Japan, but T’s Tantan is a rare exception. Their vegan menu uses no meat, dairy or animal products. Enjoy a selection of vegan foods on their breakfast menu including shoyu ramen, tantanmen, soup and rice, and more. Their recommended meal is the ‘Shiawase Tantan Soup Kake Gohan,’ a mix of rice and grains and an original T’s Tantan soup. Visit here if you want something healthy when you wake up.
Boulangerie La Terre
If you’re looking for bread in the morning then we recommend this place. They bake lots of fresh bread nice and early. This fluffy looking bread is made with milk from Jersey cattle from the city of Aso in Kumamoto Prefecture. Its fresh sweetness and fluffy texture is loved by customers.
We hope you find this useful when staying in Tokyo. Start your day with a delicious breakfast at Tokyo Station.
