The wickets are the face of stations. Around the wicket where train passengers are concentrating is first boundary for taking trains.
The automated gate should not lose service quality to human service that used to be conducted mostly by station attendants. A design project was implemented for maintaining passengers' smooth traffic and creating the expression of JR East premises. The total design work of vending machine traffic consisting of ticket vender, wicket and others was conducted. The evolution of facilities has still been going on since then such as on magnetizing tickets, store-fare card, and IC card.
