  • Tokyo station Marunouchi South exit out of the front. As the product on the first floor at the post office here do not post product is not offered. Due to Lawson's underground isn't normally Lawson in the town in JP Lawson, has tied up with the post office or postal savings ATM is located. Also, there are still rare at the moment (11/2016), self-checkout terminals.
