Station layout[edit]

The station, which is underground, consists of an island platform and two tracks. There is an elevator between the ticket gate level and the platform level. The bathrooms are on the first underground floor, outside the ticket gates. In 2005, a multi-function toilet, including facilities for infant care and the physically disabled were installed.

In 2005, the outer walls of the platform area were repaired, and the running in board was changed to a larger, rectangular shape. The outer walls were also given a unique, decorative design.

Because the station is located on an s-shaped bend in the track, two watchmen, part of the station staff, are needed.
