Entrance to the Meitetsu Nagoya Station

Meitetsu Nagoya Station (名鉄名古屋駅 Meitetsu Nagoya eki?) is the principal station of the Nagoya Railroad (Meitetsu) system in Nagoya, Japan. Most trains of Meitetsu's major lines operate through this station. The station is also a gateway to the Chūbu Centrair International Airport, which is connected with the station by the Rapid Express service started on January 29, 2005.

This station is built under the Meitetsu Department Store, therefore the station area is very narrow for the large number of passengers, but it is very difficult to enlarge the station. Therefore at this station, passengers' waiting spots are separated by destination. Passengers are required to wait at their spot to go.

The station is adjacent to JR Central's Nagoya Station, the city's central station, and Kintetsu Nagoya Station, the terminal of the Kintetsu Nagoya Line.

Riding spots[edit]

At Meitetsu Nagoya Station, passengers' riding spots are separated by their destinations. Additionally, Meitetsu have 2-door trains and 3-door trains, therefore passengers are required to wait at the spot with light on.
