Kami-Shinjō Station

Kami-Shinjō Station (上新庄駅 Kami-Shinjō-eki?, station number: HK-64) is a railway station on the Hankyu Kyoto Line located in Higashiyodogawa-ku, Osaka Prefecture, Japan. It is one of two nearest stations to Osaka University of Economics as well as Zuiko Yonchome Station on the Osaka Municipal Subway Imazatosuji Line.

Layout[edit]

The station has two elevated side platforms serving a track each, over Japan National Route 479. Ticket gates are located in the north and the south. "Kami-Shinjo Hankyu Building" is close to the south gates. Opened as a ground-level station in 1928, it was elevated in 1975 shifting platforms in the direction of Kyoto, and removing the level crossing on Japan National Route 479 (then Osaka Municipal Road Shinjo Yamatogawa Route).
