The station has one elevated island platform between two tracks. The station building was designed by Urabesekkei, an architectural firm based in Osaka. Prior to the platform elevation, the station was only accessible from the east (Sembon Street side), but the station renovation made it accessible from both the east and west sides.

The design elements of the former station building were evocative of nearby Nijo-jo castle. The building was dismantled and rebuilt at the Umekoji Steam Locomotive Museum in 1996.
