Nagoya Station (Japan)
Nagoya Station (名古屋駅, Nagoya-eki) is a major railway station in Nakamura-ku, Nagoya, Japan. It is one of the world's largest train stations by floor area (410,000 m2), and houses the headquarters of the Central Japan Railway Company (JR Central). Much of this space is located in the JR Central Towers atop the station, as well as in underground concourses. The current station complex was completed on December 20, 1999. The station and the area around it is officially called Meieki (名駅) in the Japanese addressing system.
The station is adjacent to Meitetsu Nagoya Station, the terminal of Meitetsu, and Kintetsu Nagoya Station, the terminal of the Kintetsu Nagoya Line.
The twin-towered station rises over 50 storeys, and is the tallest railway-station building in the world.

Six island platforms for the Tōkaidō Main Line, Chuo Line, and Kansai Line are situated in the eastern part of the station (the side where JR Central Towers are situated) and serve 12 tracks.
