    From "either" of the three stations...

    Hello.

    The highs and lows of izakaya dining | The Japan Times Online
    From either of the three stations, take a bus or taxi down to the Ebisu 3-chome crossing. If coming from Ebisu, go straight across, and you'll see Quienquiera on your left after about 100 meters.

    Shouldn't "either" be "any"?

    Thank you.

    I would like to help you but you do not let me. You keep deleting the threads which you start and I answer, and I very much would like to know why. A good question arises in me: Why am I on your friends list? Why did you invite me?

    Hello Daruma

    Learn more here. Look for either of more than two.

    All the best

    I would favour "any" in this case.

    'Any' gets my vote too.

    I agree that "any" should be preferred in the cited situation. (I did read Soup's reference.)
