Shopping and dining with Nagoya's streets far, far below

In recent years the Nagoya Station area has become a major shopping district for tourists and locals alike. Much of the credit for this can be given to the JR Central Towers complex.

How to Get There

Access to the towers is on the east side of Nagoya Station, inside the Sakura-dori exit.

Quick Facts

At 245 meters (804 feet) JR Central Towers is the eighth-tallest building in Japan

Completed in 1999, it is part of the world's largest train complex by floor area

Shopping in the sky

JR Central Towers stands directly above JR Nagoya Station and is home to shopping centers, restaurants, the Nagoya Marriott Associa Hotel and 30 floors of office space.

The lower floors are home to the upmarket Takashimaya Department Store where you can browse high-end brand clothing and pick up gourmet foods, desserts, and souvenirs. On the 12th and 13th floors, you can find an extensive dining area with cuisine from all over the world.

Taking in the view

Take the elevator up to the 51st floor of the west tower to the Panorama Salon. Here you can relax in a wine lounge, a cafe or a restaurant as you take in the panoramic view of the sprawling city, with Midland Square in front and the majestic Nagoya Castle in the distance.

Complete your shopping experience

2017 saw yet further expansion of the JR Central towers complex. Walking beneath the station takes you to Gate Walk, an underground street with 20 shops and restaurants. This connects to the JR Gate Tower building that includes the eight-story Gate Tower Mall and more restaurants.

This included a Starbucks on the 15th floor at which you can sit out in the open-air garden and enjoy views of the city that are, if not quite as spectacular as from Panorama Salon, slightly more accessible.
