Shin-Shibamata station is in Tokyo's Katsushika ward on the Hokuso line. You can use the local service as well as express. The Hokuso line proper only extends to the next station, Keisei Takasago, but you can stay on the line as it turns into either the Keisei, Toei Asakusa, or Keikyu lines, giving you access to Ueno, Asakusa, Shinagawa, Nishi-Magome, Haneda Airport, and more. This area does not get too busy during rush hours. It is a fairly new line built alongside Chiba New Town, with only 15 stations, connecting Keisei Takasago to Inba-Nihon-Idai. Ticket prices along this line are comparatively higher than other trains: a famous saying goes that even if you lose your wallet, you should take special care not to lose your train pass! From 2010 the line has access to Narita Airport as well. There are not that many shops around the station, but there is a 24-hour supermarket and convenience stores nearby, as well as drugstores and other things you would need everyday.
