Lift at Shinjuku Gyoemmae Station 2020/2/8 02:04
Good morning,

Previously lift to street level is only at Exit 3 (Only servicing east-bound trains to Ikebukuro). Is the lift at exit 1 (for west-bound train to Ogikubo) now ready? The website says it is under construction until 2018... I need to plan my journey from Haneda in April...

I donft know where you got the old info about closure until 2018, but when I stayed near the station in December 2019 both Exit 1 & 3 elevators were working. I check the maintenance schedule, and it says (a) Exit 1 elevator inspection on 2/25; (b) Exit 3 elevator inspection on 2/20.

There is a path between the two platforms, but it requires climbing stairs (under the tracks).

Hi 092!

Thanks for responding.. This is exactly what Ifm hoping for.. An answer from someone who had or are using exit 1 lift. I was there in October but only used exit 3. This time I just want to make sure that I will be able to use the exit 1 lift in April when I arrive from Haneda on the west-bound train since we will have luggage. Of cause I can plan to take the east-bound train but that would cost slightly more.
