Kita-Senju Station is one of the largest and busiest railway stations of the world, with many walkways, escalators and elevators connecting its different parts.


Kita-Senju is located in the north-eastern ward of Adachi. It is somewhat of an island with Arakawa River to the east and north-east, and Sumida River to the south and south-west. The two rivers touch each other in the north-west and south-east thus forming the “island” of Kita Senju. During the Edo times, Kita-Senju was the eastern shitamachi (downtown) of the city and the gateway to the northern country. Some of the Edo charm can still be seen in Kita-Senju's narrow streets with their old buildings, shops, and restaurants, which have continually been operational since their original days. The people of Kita-Senju are also among the friendliest of the city.
