Feebs11"Tokyo Station is the third station after this one".1, How many stops are there before Tokyo Station?

The answer could be "2", couldn't it?2,After this station, how many stations are there to Tokyo Station?The answer could be "

3", right?Can I rewrite 2 to

'How many stations are there to Tokyo Station from this one?'

But the answer could be "3" or "4", right?Thanks

LiveinjapanFeebs11Thank you very much.

Liveinjapan'How many stations are there before Tokyo Station?'sounds good.How about:

"How many stops is Tokyo Station form this one?" "Tokyo Stationis the third stationform this one.""Where is Tokyo Station from this one?" "Tokyo Stationis the third stationform this one."If the answer needs to include the words

, these questions are correct?'the third station'LiJ

LiveinjapanI think in actual practice, if you were on the train you'd say, "How many [more] stops to Tokoyo Station?" and the reply would be, "Three more stops." If the train were in the station at the time, the current stop wouldn't be counted.

If you were on the platform, you'd say, "How many stops to Tokoyo Station?", and the reply could be, "It's three stops from here." It's possible you might ask how many stations if you're on the platform, but on the train you're definately thinking about stops.

P.S. LiJ, the question in your last post - "are these questions correct?"

Haohaoxuexi(casual) "How many years off are/is the next Olympics?" How many years to/'til the next Olympics?" "There's one more year." "It's still one year off." "It's/They're one year away."
