Nippori Station (Japan)
Nippori Station (日暮里駅, Nippori-eki) is a major railway interchange station in Arakawa, Tokyo, Japan.
The station is an intersection of JR and Keisei systems. Although Keisei Ueno Station, the terminal of Keisei, is also located adjacent to JR East's Ueno Station, Nippori Station provides easier transfer.
A new elevated platform serving outbound Keisei trains opened to traffic on October 3, 2009. The new elevated line has two side platforms serving a single track. One platform is for Skyliner, Cityliner, and Eveningliner boarding, while the other platform is for regular commuter trains. Ueno-bound trains continue to discharge on the original platform on the lower level.
