Hōnanchō Station (方南町駅 Hōnanchō-eki?) is a subway station on the Tokyo Metro Marunouchi Line in Suginami, Tokyo, Japan, operated by the Tokyo subway operator Tokyo Metro.

Lines[edit]

Hōnanchō Station is the terminus of the 3.2 km Hōnanchō branch of the Tokyo Metro Marunouchi Line from Nakano-sakaue.[1] It is numbered "m-03".

Station layout[edit]

The station consists of a single underground island platform on the second basement level, serving two tracks. The platforms are long enough to handle six-car trains, but as this station is served only by three-car Honancho branch line shuttle services, platform-edge doors are provided only for a three-car length, with steel fences provided along the remainder of the platform length.[1]

There are two entrances to the station: Entrance 1 provides access to the west (terminating) end of the platforms via a concourse on the same second basement level, while Entrance 2 provides access to the east end of the platforms via a concourse on the first basement level. Toilet facilities are available on the Entrance 1 concourse.[2]

In fiscal 2011, the station was used by an average of 31,095 passengers daily.[3]
