Stations enquiry

After reading quite a bit of reviews from other source..(as stated my one review that
it is useless buying a JR pass if staying around Tokyo Station).
I'm just wondering if Tokyo Station is near to JR station
as I have the intention of staying at Hotel Shinabashi Lions Rock!
Also hope you can direct me how to get to the hotel.


Hi there,

Tokyo station is the major train station in Japan. Its where all Shinkansen lines connect, depart from and many other trains come together as well. Not sure why you think its from an other company?

Shimbashi is also a JR station and has a direct connection with Tokyo station. From where the JR Pass will take you anywhere in Japan.

Hope this helps,
