Omiya Station, Saitama
Omiya Station (Japanese: 大宮駅 Ōmiya Eki) is the name of a railway station in Omiya-ku, Saitama, Saitama, Japan. It is the busiest station in Saitama Prefecture and one of the hub stations in the Greater Tokyo Area for the East Japan Railway Company (JR East) as well as the most important gateway from Tokyo to Tohoku and Hokuriku regions along with Niigata and Nagano Prefectures.
Following railway and similar services are available from the station:
- East Japan Railway Company (JR East)
- Tobu Railway
- Saitama New Urban Transit
This station also stops local and midnight buses and intercity coaches including ones to Narita International Airport and almost domestic Haneda Tokyo International Airport. The latter are often caught in slow road traffic, so train trips including Tokyo Monorail from Hamamatsucho Station or Keihin Electric Express Railway from Shinagawa are the more reliable options to Haneda.
