Overview

This is a rectangular space between the station entrance and the steps to the bridge which is divided into two sections by the gate line. Two of the exit gates, at the east end of the gate line jut south, towards the station entrance.

The ticket sales windows are on the left-hand (west) side and the left-hand gates are normally the ones you need. The manual gate is at the west end of the gate line.
