Nakai Station (中井駅 Nakai-eki?) is the name of two railway stations in Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan, served by the Seibu Shinjuku Line (station number SS04) and the Toei Ōedo Line (station number E-32) respectively. The two stations are separated by approximately two minutes' walk through a shopping street.


Nakai Station is served by the following two lines.

Station layout[edit]


The Seibu station has two side platforms serving two tracks.[1] The station has a third central track used for passing express trains in both directions.[2] Due to ongoing bridge construction on Yamate-dori, which runs above and perpendicular to the station, the only passenger gate is located by the inbound platform; access to the outbound platform is limited to an elevated bridge crossing the tracks.

2 Seibu Shinjuku Line for Takadanobaba and Seibu-shinjuku


The Toei station has an island platform with two tracks, located underground parallel to and below both Yamate-dori and the Central Circular Route.
