Tamachi Station (田町駅 Tamachi-eki?) is a railway station in Minato, Tokyo, Japan, operated by the East Japan Railway Company (JR East).

Lines[edit]

Tamachi Station is served by the circular Yamanote Line and the Keihin-Tōhoku Line. All trains stop at this station.

Station layout[edit]

The station consists of two island platforms providing 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.

Waist-high platform edge doors were installed on the Yamanote Line platforms in February 2013, entering operation in March.[1]
