改札口

I had some friends over last night and we got into a discussion of what you call 改札口 in English--the place in the subway/train station where you put your ticket in to enter or leave the platform area. I'd use ticket gate, but I've also heard ticket wicket and ticket barrier. Someone else suggested turnstile, but the ones in Japan aren't actually turnstiles. What do you guys think?
