Akabane Station Tokyo 赤羽駅 東京

Akabane Station Night

Akabane Station at night


Akabane Station in Kita Ward in the very north of urban Tokyo is a busy commuter train station entirely operated by the East Japan Railway Company (JR East).

Outside the West Exit are various local bus stops as well as two big department stores. Behind the department stores, decidedly residential areas begin.

The East Exit from the North Gate leads into central Akabane. There is a small park right outside the East Exit, consisting of two trees and some abstract artwork. It’s a popular spot though, with many people relaxing there, sipping on cans of coffee or beer or enjoying the smoking area.

The majority of the shops outside the East Exit are just the average variety of Japanese chain stores. Walk a bit ahead and you will enter LaLa Garden, a large roofed shopping mall offering more of the same.
