Tamachi Station (田町駅 Tamachi-eki ?) is a railway station in Minato, Tokyo, Japan.

Contents

History

The station opened on December 16, 1909 as an intermediate station on the newly opened Shinagawa-Karasumori section of the national railway.

Lines

Tamachi is served by the Yamanote and Keihin-Tōhoku lines. All trains call at Tamachi.

Mita Station on the Toei Asakusa and Mita underground (subway) lines is within walking distance, although there is no physical connection and the stations are generally not marked as an interchange on route maps.

Tamachi is the nearest JR station to Keio University's Mita campus and Temple University Japan's Mita and Azabu campuses.

Layout

The station consists of two platforms with cross-platform interchange in the direction of travel between the Yamanote line (platforms 2 and 3) and the Keihin-Tōhoku line (platforms 1 and 4). As this is the first cross-platform interchange following the intersection of both lines the platforms are comparatively busy. There is a skatepark near the station.
