Shinjuku Station to become more user-friendly

posted on May 1, 2016

The Tokyo metropolitan government is planning to make the capital's busiest rail station more user-friendly ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics.

Shinjuku Station is used by nearly 3.6 million people per day. The station is like a maze, with crisscrossing passages connecting a number of railway lines.

Tokyo metropolitan government officials and railway companies have drawn up basic rules for simpler signboards for foreign visitors and barrier-free facilities.

The operators agreed to standardize English terms used in signboards as well as their colors, and introduce common guides to identify railway routes.
