    The Odakyu Shinjuku station has two departure-floors: upper for Express train and lower for Local train. Do not take the local train (各駅停車, Kakueki-teisha) since it stops at every station and even waits for express trains passing by. There are also express train that goes to another direction, such as “Fujisawa”, “Enoshima”, and “Karakida” (多摩急行, Tama-kyuko). Be extra careful not to take those trains. Please ask people around you to make sure it takes you to the right destination. Express train leaves every 10 minutes from platform 4 and 5, and takes 50 minutes to "Hon-Atsugi" station. Finally "Shinjuku" station is one of the largest transit hubs in Tokyo, serving many different train and subway lines. Each has its own separate gate so make sure you make your way toward the Odakyu line.
