Hitotsubashi-Gakuen Station (一橋学園駅 Hitotsubashi-Gakuen eki?) is a railway station in Kodaira, Tokyo, Japan. This station is served by the Seibu Tamako Line and all services on this line stop here.

History[edit]

Hitotsubashi-Gauken Station opened on April 6, 1928, when the track between Kodaira and Kokubunji, via Hagiyama was opened, which is now part of the Seibu Tamako Line.

Station layout and operation[edit]

The station has an island platform on a north-south axis containing two platforms. Trains for Kokubunji leave from platform 2 (East side) and trains depart from platform 1 (West side) for stations to Hagiyama. The Seibu Tamako Line is single-track most of its length, and dual track at Histotsubashi-gauken station is used to allow trains travelling in opposite directions to pass each other. Thus, a train arriving in the station will wait at the platform for a train to stop at the opposite platform before departure. The station has entrances-exits at both ends of the platform (North and South). Passengers are able to cross to the platform island by means of small level crossings after the automatic ticket wicket gates. Passengers then climb steps (south) or a ramp (north) to platform level.
