Let me be clear.
If you were a person who had only been to Shinjuku once or twice, or who never went at all, you will lose 100%.
“I’ll be waiting at the place where the ticket gate of Shinjuku station came out.”
There is no way I can meet safely after doing such a meeting.
The more Shinjuku station is registered here in Guinness, the more stations the number of passengers is in the world.
There are many ticket gates.
There are eight ticket gates, “West Exit”, “Central West Exit”, “Keio West Exit”, “Odakyu West Exit”, “East Exit”, “Central East Exit”, “South Exit” and “New South Exit”.
Is that okay?
“I’m waiting at the ticket gate”
Don’t promise to.
“I’ll be waiting before the police station where I left the west exit of Shinjuku station”
I have to tell the exit of the ticket gate properly.
But you know.
Even if I say “where it came from the West Exit”, there are a lot of people who are lost at the West Exit, are not they?
Therefore,This time, we will explain the way to “West Exit Koban” and “East Exit Koban ” which is a staple of the meeting place.
The game is starting from where I got off the train
JR Shinjuku station has a complicated structure. Please look at the in-house map of Shinjuku station shown below.
“West exit” and “east exit” are both exits through “North street” at the extreme end of Ikebukuro.
To tell the truth, this is the most stray point for people.
Many people get off the train and go out to the “central aisle”, so they can not reach “West entrance”.
The central aisle is directly connected with “ticket gate of Odakyu line” and “ticket gate of Keio line”.
Since JR’s “Central West Exit” is small compared to them, it gets lost. I have gone out of the ticket gate of the Odakyu line, no matter how much I search, I will not have a police box, what shall I do, I will say that I do not have any latin,
“Where are you now?”
“I have a department store somehow”
“Which department store?”
That makes me feel at ease.
By the way, there are Odakyu Department Store and Keio Department Store in Shinjuku West Exit.
Although it’s a little away from the West Exit, there are also Hulk of the Odakyu lineage, and there are also department stores such as Lumine, Shinjuku Miroad and Lumine East.
The number of each stick is as follows.
- Saikyo Line, Shonan Shinjuku Line, Yokosuka Line, Tohoku Main Line, platform 1, 2, 3, 4.
- Narita Express is available at platform 5 and 6 .
- platform7 and 8, go to the central main line, Chuo line (Tokyo direction)
- The 9th and 10th platforms are the Chu-o Line Limited Express (Special Azusa such as Azusa)
- Towards 11th and 12th platforms are Central Line Main Line, Chuo Line (Takao direction / Hachioji, Tachikawa, Mitaka etc.)
- Sobu line 13, Central line (If you come late at night you will arrive departing from this train at each station stop in the Chuo Line (Ochanomizu, Chiba)
- For platform 14, turn around Yamanote Line (Shibuya / Shinagawa area)
- The platform 15t is around the Yamanote line (Ikebukuro / Ueno direction)
※ You know that the Yamanote Line is going around a whole round? So, whichever number 14 or 15, you get to the destination, whichever is it taking time?
- Sobu line, Central Line (If you get late at night you will arrive from this train station at each station (Mitaka direction) on the central line)
POINT1 Taking a car at the edge of the train
There are three points to safely get out of the ticket gate at the West Exit & East Exit.
The most important point is to get on the edge of the train.
If the Chu-o line, please get on from the Nakano side. If Yamanote Line, Shin Okubo side. If Sobu line, Okubo side . If Saikyo Line (Shonan Shinjuku Line) ,Ikebukuro side.
Please get on that car.
POINT2 Getting down the stairs at the edge of the home
Both central and north aisles of Shinjuku station are located under the home.
It is South Concourse Course on the top.
There are several stairs in the station’s home.
Please look at the station interior map.
It is the stairway on the very most side of Home.
In terms of floor plans, it means stairs from the Ikebukuro / Kofu area.
POINT3 Aim for North Route
Both “West Exit” and “East Exit” are “North Route” in the Shinjuku Station premises.
Is that okay?
Do not forget this absolute. “North Route” is important. So, I will say it again. “North Route” is important.
Looking at the floor plan, if you go down the stairs at the end of the home, you will connect to northern roads with nature.
However, only the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th home (Saikyo line, Shonan Shinjuku line) is different. Where you go down the most stairway, you will get off to a place close to “Central East Exit”.
So, you riding the Saikyo Line and the Shonan Shinjuku Line descend the stairs at the end of the home, go through the wide place called the Alps Plaza, and go to “North Route”.
When entering “North Route”, you can go out from the “west entrance” ticket gate promptly by going to the “West Exit” in the sign.
If you go to the “East Exit” in the sign, you can go to the “East Exit” ticket gate.
■ How to go without hesitating to West Exit Police Station at JR Shinjuku Station
First thing you need to know is that the Nishiguchi Koban of Shinjuku Station is in the basement. It is basement.
Why emphasize the underground, there are a lot of people who misunderstand the basement of the Shinjuku station and the ground. Shinjuku, in particular the West exit, has a feeling on the ground though it is underground.
The place out of the west exit gate of Shinjuku station is underground.
Nishiguchi Koban can easily go if you can get out of the west exit gate.
(1) Exit the west exit gate.
(2) Go straight on it.
(3) You can see a police box on the right side.

■ How to go without hesitating to east exit police box at JR Shinjuku station
Police boxing at JR East Exit is unexpectedly unknown.
Even those who have come to Shinjuku many times,
“Huh? Have you been policed at the east exit?”
Because it is about saying.
The point for going without going to Higashiguchi Koban is “Which stairway will you climb?” I think that it is related to this.
From the conclusion, after leaving the wicket at the east exit, go to the left and go up the first stairs. Go up and go out, there is a small police box on the right.
(1) Exit the east exit gates and go to the left immediately.
(2) Go up the first stairs.
(3) There is a police box immediately to the outside.
↑ ↑ ↑ ↑ ↑ ↑ When leaving the east exit gate of Shinjuku station, it’s such a scenery. To go east exit police box, follow the arrow called “Kabukicho area” of yellow sign, go up the stairs on the left immediately.
↑ ↑ ↑ ↑ ↑ ↑ This stairway. Go up this stairs and go outside. Then, there is a small police box just to the right.
↑ ↑ ↑ ↑ ↑ ↑ This is “east exit police box”. It is surprisingly used for meeting, so please be sure to know the location.
■ To the end
Anyway, JR Shinjuku station is a bamboo monster.
It‘s a complicated and strange station, but that’s why it’s attractive.
Even though I go there everyday, there’s something new discovery every time because it is complicated and complex.
Is there such a station? It is not it!
So, I love Shinjuku.
