Previously there was only one ticket gate, at the south exit, and the platform and station building were connected by an underground passageway. In order to make it accessible, and to prevent traffic accidents at the railroad crossing outside the station, it was decided that it would be rebuilt as an over-track station with a north exit, elevators and escalators. It was also decided to add a free passageway over the tracks as well as elevators and an escalator on the north end, and construction began in October 2007, with the new station building opening on 16 December of the same year. On 25 March 2008, the new south exit, with elevators, escalators and stairs opened. Because of space constraints, on the north side there is only an upward escalator.
Before the renovations, there were no toilets within the station, and the Suginami public toilet in the square outside the station was used. With the new over-track station building, however, toilets were built inside the ticket gates, including a multipurpose toilet. After the station's renovations were completed, the public toilet outside the station was rebuilt. The shops outside the south exit were closed before the renovation.
The station is only 700 m from neighboring Eifukucho Station, and both Eifukuchō Station and Hamadayama Station can be seen from the platform.
