Not too complicated for the building layouts. For tourist is quite easy to find the right way to get on the right train. Food court, gift shop, shopping mall are all together. Simple than other big station but with all the function you need.

Had a quick business trip here but felt so welcomed & taken care off. Even if they didn't speak much English always everyone was so helpful. Definitely worth a stop by if you are just passing through.

It's brand spanking new, the shops are brilliant. They even have special loos for kids which look like camp sites. This new station may have sucked some life out of Oita with the recent closure of Forus and some other shops and department stores in...More

There were many shops, the place was so clean and the services was so good! Once I asked for the ATM and the receptionist drew a map for me. The place was very very accessible. Went in december and the decoration was beautiful.

Oita grew up a little bit once this amazing station was finished. It's like a mini Hakata station, with great shopping, lots of food choices, a movie theater, even an onsen with a great view!
