Hanazono Station (花園駅 Hanazono-eki?) is a train station in Ukyo-ku, Kyoto, Japan. The station (and surrounding neighborhood) are named for Emperor Hanazono, who had a palace in the area, now the Myōshin-ji temple complex.

Line[edit]

Nearby[edit]

Just to the north and east is the major temple complex of Myōshin-ji, and the affiliated Hanazono University (to the east, actually closer to Emmachi Station).

Layout[edit]

The elevated station has an island platform with two tracks. Track No. 1 is for trains bound for Kyoto and Track No. 2 is for trains bound for Kameoka and Sonobe.[1]

History[edit]

Hanazono Station opened on January 1, 1898, less than one year after the opening of the Kyoto Railway (predecessor of the San'in Main Line).[2]
