Lines 5 and 6 are located one step higher than lines 1, 2, 3, and 4. It used to be a station where the horizontal platforms were lined up so that the freight line, which was originally elevated, would be pressed, but as a part of the station redevelopment project by Urawa City (currently Saitama City), even to the adjacent building edge Land expansion and new freight line platform (line 5 and 6) construction has been carried out on all sides, making it possible to make maximum use of the small land between the large and small commercial and business buildings in the surrounding area while making it compact. It has the appearance of an elevated station in the center of the city where homes are located. Transfer according to the elevated platformConcourseBetween and homeStairsIn addition toescalatorエ レ ベ ー タ ーWas installed. There is a transfer concourse under the platform, with a central ticket gate on the south side of the concourse, and on the north side of the concourse in November 2015.SuicaA dedicated atre north exit ticket gate was installed.

There is a 25m wide free passage connecting the east and west of the station outside the central ticket gate, and exit the ticket gate to fill the height difference between the west exit and the east exit, and an up staircase, an escalator, and an elevator are installed on the west exit side.

As for the exterior of the station, the part of the station facing the plaza in front of the already completed station is emerald green and is entirely covered with glass. About the station west exit, 7 floorsStation buildingThe home is covered with a windbreak wall because it will be hidden in the "JR Urawa Station West Exit Building" (opened on March 2018, 3 as an expanded floor area of ​​Atre Urawa). To the south of the station buildingHotel Mets UrawaThere is, and it functions as a business hotel directly connected to the station.

Prior to the start of construction, this station has 2 lines on the island platform and 4 linesGround stationIt was (the freight line passed by an elevated line diagonally above the passenger line). The Tohoku Freight Line passes between the West Exit Station Building and the Tohoku Passenger Line at the height of the second floor above the ground, so it is difficult to build an overpass for transfer, which is unusual for a JR ground station, not an overpass. An underground passage connecting both station buildings was in contact with each platform. As a result, it was not easy to widen the transfer passages compared to overpasses, and as a result the station structure maintained in the 2s was maintained until the 1960s, making it difficult to meet increasing passenger demand and barrier-free demand. .. In addition, because the stairs leading from the West Exit station building to the underground passage are located directly under the freight line and due to narrow land conditions, it is not possible to build a new platform on the freight line, and until the timetable revision on March 2000, 2013, the Shonan Shinjuku line I was passing this station.

In addition, the direction notation such as Nikko and Kuroiso that were left on the enameled board that had been hung on the platform pillars until the station was elevated from the JNR era has disappeared.
