The largest terminal station in the Chubu Region, supporting a modern city
Nagoya Station is in Nagoya City, which is the largest city in the Chubu Region. It is a terminal station that a great number of people use, and is one of the largest stations, following those in the Tokyo metropolitan area and Osaka Station. In addition to Tokaido Shinkansen line, local train lines bound for Mie Prefecture and Gifu Prefecture start from JR Nagoya Station. In addition, as there are separate Nagoya Stations for the Meitetsu, Kintetsu, and the Nagoya Municipal Subway lines, people who visit Nagoya Station for the first time may find it complicated. The area surrounding the stations is called "Meieki."
It takes about 30 minutes from Chubu Centrair International Airport to Nagoya Station. As Tokaido Shinkansen bullet trains stop at Nagoya Station, many people are always coming and going here. In addition, there are many commercial facilities around Meieki. On the east side of Sakuradori-guchi Exit and Hirokoji-guchi Exit, JR Central Towers are attached to the station. The buildings include a department store, Takashimaya, and an exclusive hotel, Nagoya Marriott Association Hotel. With JR Central Towers in the lead, high-rise buildings have been subsequently completed one after another, including Midland Square, Nagoya Lucent Tower, and Mode Gakuen Spiral Towers. In this way, Nagoya Station is not only a place connecting multiple means of transportation but it is also an area with a developed distribution function with a focus on commerce.
