Chita Handa Station East Rotary Renewal Concept Workshop

Meitetsu Chita Handa Station is the busiest station in Handa City, used by more than 9,000 passengers a day, and the East Rotary is a transportation hub with a bus terminal and taxi pool, serving as the center of the city. It is positioned as a base and gateway. Currently, the sidewalk of the urban planning road “Izumi Line” from East Rotary to JR Handa Station is heavily trafficked by commuters and commuters in the morning and evening hours, but there is less traffic during the daytime hours. Masu. In addition, the East Rotary is noticeably too large for the number of passengers, buses, and taxis in operation, and it cannot be said that it is a comfortable place for people to stay or that it is sufficiently connected to Kurashity.

Many people only use it for transit and are not fully utilizing its potential.From the perspective of city promotion, the view from Chita Handa Station, the gateway to the city, is an inorganic space that gives a somewhat lonely impression. This is one of the major challenges facing the city center.

At the Chita Handa area future planning workshop held in 2025, we held a workshop to create a future map for the Chita Handa area, where we learned about the “stillness” and “motion” of a diverse group of people who wanted a place where they could interact with people, a place where they could take a break, eat out, and do activities. There have been many calls for a space where both can come true, and with the future image of “a central park that connects people and things with nature” (from the Chita Handa Area Dream Future Map), East Rotary will not only be a means of transportation, but also a place where people can It was confirmed that citizens’ expectations were high, as the need for a plaza function to support the activities of the public was depicted.

Taking these issues and future images into account, we are changing the nature of the rotary in order to make the space in front of the East Rotary station, which is mainly car-oriented, an attractive place where everyone can stay comfortably and that can be used in a variety of ways. We will hold a workshop to discuss this.

We will work together with the local community to create a better space in front of Chita Handa Station, with the aim of community development in which the public and private sectors collaborate! Now that the city’s downtown area is gaining momentum, let’s work together to create a space in front of the station that will be loved by everyone in the area!
