Yurakucho and Otemashi has no intercity lines.
Otemashi is a subway station

Show the title of this thread : World's Largest and Busiest Passenger Rail Terminals
Terminal is for the station wich intercity line stop, it is not the case of Akihabara, Yurakucho and Otemashi.

@Yardmaster. I agree, we can't include monorails, in much the same way we don't include trams.

I think my suggested criteria was that you couldn't leave the station itself, unless it was an obvious directly connected station where you could transfer without walking down the street (i.e. Kings Cross/St. Pancras, essentially two stations side by side, but a single Tube station between them and they are all treated as one big terminus/station complex)

By leaving the station to a tram, you are thus walking down the street and no longer in the station. I guess a system like in Belgium where there may be underground tram platforms directly inside the station, this is a different situation but not your usual. Otherwise we would end up including bus bays as well ;O)

Monorails are difficult but as they are not standard rail and more likened to tramways, I believe they should also not be connected.

@[email protected] Forgive me if I'm wrong, but were you not the forumer who was posting endless shopping malls on the current "biggest and most important store" thread? despite being told it was not about shopping malls but single stores? If I'm wrong, I'm sorry, but if this was you, you are doing the same here. This thread is about terminus stations and not suburban or metro ones.

We have Utrecht listed with 14 platforms ?

Could you give a break-down, that is, how are these eighteen platforms used?

He probably means eighteen tracks - not all tracks going into Utrecht station have an adjacent platform. However, this overly schematic layout might give you some idea of the requested break-down.

Tokyo station is not the busiest station in Tokyo, even not in Japan if I exclude the other stations of Tokyo and many stations are bigger.

Tokyo station is no doubt the most important terminal station in Japan even though it doesn't hold as many passengers as other major stations. It's just because people don't get off at the station.
In fact, it is the buisiest in terms of the number of trains (over 4,000 per day), and the most profitable.

City Totals for Main Terminii and not for the commuter rail station
Yurakucho : How many time can we said that It is not a main terminii only the Yamanote line and the Kehin Tohoku line stop here, these are not intercity lines.

Iidabashi : Only the Chou local line stop here, it is not an intercity line, it don't go outside Tokyo metropolitan area (That you call Greater Tokyo)

Akihabara : Only Yamanote, Kehin Tohoku and Tsukuba Express, These don't go outside the metropolitan area of Tokyo

Otemachi is a subway station Subway are not intercity lines.

No, these are connected with each other.
The theme of this thread is station that is the busiest.
You show data, and please argue.
