Nishi-Akashi Station Wikipedia
The Shinkansen and regular train platforms are located some distance from each other, and are connected by a pedestrian overpass located above a public road. As the overpass to the regular platform is inaccessible from the south entrance to the station, passengers are allowed to access it via the Shinkansen side of the station.
In order to better serve passengers with different needs, escalators and elevators are located in the following areas:Escalator
Within the west concourse area, one ascending and one descending
East entrance: On the north and south sides, accessible without need of a ticket
West entrance: One each on the concourse, Shinkansen platform, and regular train platform
The Sanyo Shinkansen has two platforms which can handle two trains simultaneously. There are two pass-through lines between the two platforms as well, allowing trains to go through the station without stopping. The Sanyō Main Line (JR Kōbe Line) has three island-style platforms which can handle six trains simultaneously.Kōbe Nishi-ku Branch Municipal Offices
