Definitely the focal point of Nagoya!
Jul 2019
Whether arriving by Meitetsu train from Central Japan Int'l. Airport; departing to Toyama or arriving from Matsumoto by JR train; sightseeing around Nagoya using the subway or Aonami Line before finally returning to Centrair, all journeys seem begin and/or end at Nagoya Station. Above the collective railway concourses sits the twin towers of the JR Central Towers plus the connected JR Gate Tower.
Viewed from the outside the towers gracefully point skywards with the centre tower topped by the 'Panorama Salon' on the 51F. Inside you have all the hustle and bustle of Nagoya Station on the 1F (epitomised by the "Meeting Point" under the clock!), the glitz and glamour of shops (including JR Takashimaya Department Store and Gatetower Mall, BIC Camera, Uniqlo, etc.) up to 11F and two floors of Restaurants/Food Courts (12F & 13F). The 15F ('Sky Street') acts as a transfer floor between the respective towers and contains the Lobbies for the Hotels/Offices above.
Superb example of a modern urban development!

Shopping Galore
Dec 2019 • Solo
The mall is well connected to the Nagoya station as its name suggested. It houses very well-known Japanese retail brands such as Uniqlo and the sister brand GU, where I got some heat tech that were on sale to keep warm during the winter. Alot of the clothing were on promotional prices while I was there. Takashimaya, which has a large luxury brand offering occupies several level in the building. Bic camera can also be found in the mall and I managed to get all my pharmacy items from there. Overall, this is a convenient place to shop in Nagoya.

All under one roof!
Dec 2019
For visitors to Nagoya, especially those coming here via Shinkansen or Tour coaches, you will not miss this place as it is generally a "meeting place" as it is within the JR train and subway train stations and the bus terminal is just next to it. It's so convenient to move around from here and there are also so many things to see, shop and dine here. So expect large crowds at all times!

There are hotels (Marriott) here, departmental stores like Takashimaya and Tokyu Hands, just to name a few, many shops, gifts and convenience stores, lots of restaurants and eateries all around, especially those middle-higher ones located on the 12th and 13th storeys.

And the panoramic view from above on the surrounding areas are awesome!

Plenty to shop and eat around around this area. This is a great place to stay. I much prefer this area to Sakae. In addition, it is easy to get to the airport from here. Saves all the hassle.

Just everything you need: hotels, shopping centre, restaurants, entertainment...

If you're just stopping for a night or a couple in Nagoya I recommend to choose hotel from this "megacomplex" (eg. JR Gate Tower Hotel) because there are everything you need for a short stay.

Train, metro, bus and taxi stations, huge shopping centre, lots of restaurant (asian and western cuisine), cafes, helpful tourist information, all kind of entertainment etc.

And if you want to see Nagoya this is the place where you can take a train, bus, subway or taxi for your city explore.

Only minus is that some parts of this building complex are full of people in certain times in the morning and evening.

The central towers is where the main train station in Nagoya is. It is very busy with traffic and pedestrians. There are lots of shops and restaurants inside as well as the Marriott. From outside it stands out. The sun sets in the background which can make for great photos.

Highly recommended for travellers who don’t have much time or speak little to none Japanese. You will find a Takashimaya Dep Store, middle to high- end merchants, the Marriott Hotel and restaurants for all tastes and budgets. Most restaurants have English menus or menus with photos. Centrally located on top of the train station (JR and Shinkansen). Really busy but very clean at all times

The 2 towers house the well-known Takashimaya (department store and supermarket), many high end merchants, cafes and restaurants. It is also connected to JR train station and hotels (eg. JR Gate Tower Hotel, Marriot Hotel.) A great place to enjoy nice cuisines and great coffee.

This building has two towers and house two Takashimaya department stores (JR Takashimaya/ Takshimaya Gate Tower Mall, Tokyu Hands, the Tower Plaza shopping mall and JR Nagoya Station.
It's very busy, with local commuters, working people and tourists, almost like a business hub of Nagoya.

JR Central towers @ Nagoya
Apr 2018 • Friends
The JR central towers are located in Nagoya in the JR station and Meitetsu station localities.
There are couple of towers side by side. The towers have shopping areas, restaurants in different floors.
The view on the south side during the evening time is wonderful !
The restaurants are in the 12th and 13th floors accessible using elevators. Wheelchair access also available.
