Modern station that is the Shinkansen stopping point as well as the hub for local services. Trams services operate from the front of the station concourse. Plenty of shopping above the station as is usual with railway stations in the larger cities.

Great station with really helpful staff. Good quality restaurants and shops in the entrance and the tram stop outside takes you directly to town

A center of tram, bus, JR and high-speed rail. In the complex, there are shopping malls for shopping and eating. Another major shopping mall, AEON, is just across the main road.
