Hi! I'm Metaller Maton.
My website provides tourists to Japan useful information.
This page is written for tourists riding an express train from Tokyo station.
I introduce an great Ekiben shop in Tokyo station.
What is Ekiben?
Ekiben is a box lunch designed for those who ride express train and eat lunch in trains.
We can buy Ekiben in stop stations of express trains, such as Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka station.
We consider Ekiben as one of Japanese culture.
Ekiben provides us great experience during long distance move by train, and beautiful memorries of our journeys.
Many local stations have thier original Ekiben, which has delicious local foods.
Ekiben is one of convenient way to enjoy local food.
Ekiben shop in Tokyo station
Tokyo station has a great Ekiben shop at 1st floor inside ticket gate of JR line.
The name is “Matsuri”, meaning a festival.
Matsuri sells many kinds of local Ekiben, which means Matsuri gathers popular Ekiben from all of Japan.
These are a little expensive ($10 or more), but I strongly claim that you can get more value than the price.
Really delicious salmon and salmon egg.
Seafood and mountain vegetable
Flesh seafood and mountain vegetables.
This is a general type of Ekiben.

I hope all of tourists enjoy Ekiben during staying in Japan.
