Tokyo Station's Marunouchi Central Exit ticket gate is small but uncrowded and empty

If you come to a large station like Tokyo Station, which has 11 platforms and 22 lines, thinking that the ticket gates must be very large, you may be disappointed. Tokyo Station has a number of ticket gates, but none of them are so spacious that your eyeballs would pop out of your head. The Marunouchi Central Exit ticket gate I passed through that day is also named Central. Judging from the name alone, you might expect to see several automatic ticket gates lined up in a row at the main ticket gate on the Marunouchi side. In reality, it is a very small ticket gate.

Considering the size of the ticket gate, not many people may use this ticket gate. Indeed, as soon as one steps outside the ticket gates, Marunouchi Station Square opens up, and Gyoko-dori Avenue runs from there to the Imperial Palace. To reach the office buildings in Marunouchi, it would be more convenient to exit through the other ticket gates and follow the underground passageway. If you don't intend to walk down Gyoko-dori Avenue toward the Imperial Palace, exiting through this ticket gate won't do much good.
