Meitetsu Nagoya Station (名鉄名古屋駅, Meitetsu Nagoya eki) is the principal station of the Nagoya Railroad (Meitetsu) system in Nagoya, Japan. Most trains of Meitetsu's major lines operate through this station. The station is also a gateway to the Chūbu Centrair International Airport, which is connected with the station by the Rapid Express service started on January 29, 2005.

Contents

This station is built under the Meitetsu Department Store, therefore the station area is very narrow for the large number of passengers, but it is technically difficult to enlarge the station due to the limited and complicated underground area. [1] Therefore, at this station, passengers' waiting spots are separated by destination. Passengers are required to wait at their spot to go. [2]

The station is adjacent to JR Central's Nagoya Station, the city's central station, and Kintetsu Nagoya Station, the terminal of the Kintetsu Nagoya Line. [3]

Ticket Gates

There are 7 ticket gates at Meitetsu Nagoya Station, including the Central Ticket Gate, West Ticket Gate, South Ticket Gate, North Ticket Gate, East Ticket Gate, New South Ticket Gate and Kintetsu Connection Ticket Gate.

The Central Ticket Gate, West Ticket Gate, and South Ticket Gate are located in the Meitetsu station building, and the North Ticket Gate can be accessed from the Gatewalk Underground Shopping Mall.

The East Ticket Gate and New South Ticket Gate are only for entrance to Platform 4. The East Ticket Gate is near the underground lottery sales kiosk, and the New South Ticket Gate is at the back of the Meitetsu department store underground food section.

The Kintetsu connection ticket gate connects Platform 1 to the Kintetsu Nagoya Station platforms.

Riding spots

At Meitetsu Nagoya Station, passengers' riding spots are separated by their destinations. Additionally, Meitetsu has two-door trains and three-door trains, therefore passengers are required to wait at the spot with light on.[ citation needed ]
