Today, I am going to introduce one of my favorite place in Tokyo, Mitaka city！
First of all, I am going to tell you how to use Mitaka station.
This is the platform-wicket. Before you pass through it, you need to buy a ticket.
For example, if you want to go to Shinjuku station, you have to pay 220 yen for a ticket from Mitaka to Shinjuku, and vice versa.
After you pass through the gate, you can see like this.
there are 6 platforms and three kinds of trains in Mitaka station; JR Chuo, Sobu and tozai. I think a lot of tourists tend to use JR Chuo line. So, I would like to explain where you can go, when you use JR Chuo line.
① From Mitaka station to Tokyo station.
If you want to go to Tokyo station, you need to use platform 5 or 6. All stations are shown below.
If you use rapid train(快速電車), you can go to all these stations. On the other hand, if you take Chuo limited express train(中央特快), you can go to ↓
② From Mitaka to Takao
In the case of going to Takao, you need to use platform 3 or 4.
The case of using Chuo limited express train (中央特快), you cannot go to from Misashisakai to Musashikoganei, and Nishikokubunji and Kunitachi.
When you come to Mitaka, you will use Mitaka station so many times. I would be glad if I could help you even just a little.
Thank you for reading my article. I will probably introduce a lot of place in Japan as long as I can.
Catch you later！
