Komaba-Tōdaimae Station (駒場東大前駅 Komaba-Tōdaimae eki?) is a railway station on the Keio Inokashira Line in Komaba, Meguro, Tokyo, Japan, operated by the private railway operator Keio Corporation.

The station's name is a combination of Komaba, the name of the suburb in which it is located, and Todai-mae - which means "in front of University of Tokyo".

Lines[edit]

Komaba-Tōdaimae Station is served by the 12.7 km Keio Inokashira Line from Shibuya in Tokyo to Kichijōji. Located between Shinsen and Ikenoue, it is 1.4 km from the Shibuya terminus.[1]

Service pattern[edit]

Only all-stations "Local" services stop at this station.

Station layout[edit]

There are two main exits from the station, East and West. The East Exit is close to the main entrance to the Komaba campus of the University of Tokyo, and to the central part of Komaba. The West Exit leads to Komaba 2, 3, and 4 chōme.

The station has one island platform, serving two tracks.[2] Because the station is located on a slope, on the western end, toward Kichijoji, it is effectively an elevated station; the eastern end is an ordinary ground-level platform. The ticket gate at the western entrance is located on ground level, below the level of the platform, and the gate at eastern gate is located in an above-track station building, higher than the platforms.

There is an elevator between the platform and ground-level at the western entrance.
