    Soo many people at station. Very easy to get lost. If you have trouble finding places, best to just ask a station attendant before straying too far. Easily one of the busiest stations I have been to.

    Busiest train station in the world probably. Know which platform you need to get to in advance if possible to save from getting lost. Hard to find elevators down the the Narita Express platforms.

    This is really an "all thru Tokyo" tip but whenever you see a drink machine throw in a few Yen & try something new. Don't drink the same thing twice. ProTip: blue light = cold drink, red light = hot!

    Southern terrace entrance is easiest for catching the Narita Express. Save yourself a long walk. Just cross the street from the taxi drop off at south entrance and hook around to the right a bit.

    Possibly the busiest train station in the world with 10 train lines intersecting here! The Skyscraper District is at the West Exit, while the East Exit is the shopping district. Get a map!

    Avoid coming if possible!!! If you HAVE TO come, be really sure of the exit you want and which type of line you are taking (the metro, JR lines, private lines). They're not the same!!!

    Slightly daunting at first but works like clockwork. Get the PASMO pass at one of the kiosks. It will make your travel a lot easier.

    a 1-day ticket for all three subway lines companies cost 1580 Yen, for two 1000 Yen, for one 700 Yen. see if it is worth it or pay-as-you-go

    If you, stranger here , in hurry , and mistook west gate and east gate , fastest solution is buy cheapest ticket and through the station. So complicated and difficult. Have a nice trip!

    In Rumiko Takahashi's "Happy Talk" short story, Hina, Obi and Hamamatsu start their search for Hina's mother at Shinjuku Station. 3.64 million people use this station each day, the world's busiest.

    Too many places that claim to be Shinjuku St. The ones that are nearby are Jr, Odakyu, Keio, Marunouchi. The rest, Shinsen, Oedo, Seibu are at least 5 min from the above.

    Use the North Exit to access the Marunouchi subway line. There are no signages for the Marunouchi line at the southern exits area.

    EXITS MATTER. Make sure you are exiting at the correct one because once you're out of the train terminals, it becomes harder to cross over to different sides of the station.
  • Ben S.
    Busy, busy, busy. Signage tends to be everywhere though, so no need to freak out unless you're looking for something weird.
  • Pavel K .
    By the way if your ticket appears to be invalid keep walk through the turnstile as they open anyway as you walk through them.

    One of few JR and metro stations that has a metro plan also in English. It's a well organized maze;)

    It was just recently renovated to be 100% underground. So don't trust your Google maps much.

    Remember to get the exit gate when heading to a destination at a shinjuku stop. This station is huge and can confuse you.
