Shinjuku-sanchome Station (新宿三丁目駅, Shinjuku-sanchōme-eki) is a subway station in Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan, operated jointly by the two Tokyo subway operators, Tokyo Metro and Toei Subway.

Lines[edit]

Shinjuku-sanchōme Station is served by the following three subway lines.

The Tokyo Metro Fukutoshin Line provides through services to and from the Seibu Ikebukuro Line and Tobu Tojo Line in the north, and the Tokyu Toyoko Line and Minatomirai Line in the south. The Toei Shinjuku Line provides through services to and from the Keio Line in the west.

Station layout[edit]

The station consists of three separate island platforms serving two tracks for each respective line. The platforms for the Tokyo Metro Marunouchi Line and Fukutoshin Line are interlinked, but transfer to and from the Toei Shinjuku Line requires passing through the Toei and Tokyo Metro station ticket barriers on the main concourse.

Tokyo Metro platforms[edit]

The Tokyo Metro Marunouchi Line platforms are located on the second basement ("B2F") level running approximately east to west, and the Fukutoshin Line platforms are located on the third basement ("B3F") level running approximately north to south. They are linked by stairs and escalators at the north end of the Fukutoshin Line platforms and east end of the Marunouchi Line platforms.

Surrounding area[edit]

The station complex extends over a large area, with the Tokyo Metro Marunouchi Line and Toei Shinjuku Line platforms located in Shinjuku 3-chome (after which the station is named), and the Tokyo Metro Fukutoshin Line platforms located in Shinjuku 5-chome. The station concourse on the first basement ("B1F") level is connected to Shinjuku Station in the west by an underground pedestrian passage above the Marunouchi Line, called the Metro Promenade. Another underground passage between the two stations was completed in 2012, situated below the Kōshū Kaidō. The southern end of the Fukutoshin Line platform is linked to the Takashimaya Times Square complex by an underground passageway.

Passenger statistics[edit]

In fiscal 2011, the Tokyo Metro station (Marunouchi and Fukutoshin Lines) was used by an average of 97,688 passengers daily, and the Toei station (Shinjuku Line) was used by an average of 50,458 passengers daily (alighting passengers only).[1]
