Not much to do or see here, except the ferris wheel behind the station.Probably not worth a visit. The City view bus starts here but can be caught at other stops, pay onboard.

Modern station that is the Shinkansen stopping point as well as the hub for local services. Trams services operate from the front of the station concourse. Plenty of shopping above the station as is usual with railway stations in the larger cities.
