  • Probably the best station in Japan so far. The architecture is awesome. Can stay here 24 x 7. Just beautiful. So rich architecture. It has everything required for a passenger.
  • This station's building is amazing, the structure is just splendid, no wonder it is one of the most beautiful train stations in the world. Mostly of the stain stations in Japan are so convenient, you will find lots of different kinds of stores and restaurants, don't forget to buy some golden stuff here which is this city is famous of.
