  • Comes and goes up the stairs from the subway, and even very large roofs. It is Japan's railway station and a totally different atmosphere.

  • You can not fool you because you lose the train, it is very large and equipped. There are all the necessary services such as shops, bars etc... Much transit of people. Few chairs to sit and wait for trains and almost always busy.
