  • The subway is of course a long-distance train stop. I took advantage of it when Going to leura. I didn't know the platform, so I asked it in the information. It was very kind of you to write the number on the sticky note. I think that it is good only to go sightseeing without using the train. It is a station building not found in Japan. By the way, the restroom on the platform was very beautiful.

  • Very easy to navigate the station as well as the timetables for all the trains. Worth organising an Opal card before you arrive just to save some time.  more »
