History[edit] Akihabara
Akihabara
Station was opened in November 1890 as a freight terminal linked to Ueno Station
Ueno Station
via tracks following the course of the modern day Yamanote Line. It was opened to passenger traffic in 1925 following the construction of the section of track linking Ueno with Shinbashi via Tokyo
Tokyo
Station and the completion of the Yamanote Line. The upper level platforms were added in 1932 with the opening of an extension to the Sōbu Line from its old terminal at Ryōgoku to Ochanomizu, making Akihabara
Akihabara
an important transfer station for passengers from the east of Tokyo
Tokyo
and Chiba Prefecture. The huge growth in commuter traffic following the Second World War caused considerable congestion and was only relieved with the construction of the Sōbu line tunnel linking Kinshichō with Tokyo, bypassing Akihabara. The Hibiya Line subway station was opened on May 31, 1962, with the line's extension from Naka-Okachimachi to Ningyōchō. On August 24, 2005, the underground terminus of the new Tsukuba Express Line opened at Akihabara. The entire station complex, including the JR station, was also refurbished and enlarged in preparation for the opening of the Tsukuba Express.[4] Passenger statistics[edit] In fiscal 2013, the JR East
JR East
station was used by an average of 240,327 passengers daily (boarding passengers only), making it the ninth-busiest station operated by JR East.[5] Over the same fiscal year, the Tokyo Metro

station was used by an average of 122,576 passengers daily (both exiting and entering passengers), making it the 23rd busiest Tokyo Metro

station.[6] The passenger figures for previous years are as shown below. Note that JR East
