Mejiro Station is somewhat rare in that it possesses only a single exit. The ticket gate emerges onto Mejiro-dori with the co-ed campus of Gakushuin University and the Mejiro Elementary School to the right, and to the left a busy row of shops and restaurants. Just off Mejiro-dori, the wealthy area becomes residential and quite peaceful. The streets to the west, away from the Yamanote loop, feature a mix of typical apartment buildings spanning a few decades, and some very opulent designer houses with luxury vehicles in their garages.
Opened on March 16, 1885, it is now used by about 40,000 passengers each day.
