Rinkū Town Station (りんくうタウン駅 Rinkū-taun-eki?) is a railway station shared by West Japan Railway Company (JR West) and Nankai Electric Railway Co., Ltd. in Izumisano, Osaka Prefecture, Japan. It serves the Rinku Town commercial district located adjacent to Kansai International Airport.

Layout[edit]

This station has 2 island platforms on the third floor, serving 2 tracks each. Unusually for Japanese rail stations, trains for different railway companies stop at adjacent platforms without any physical barriers, but transfers can only be made between the two by using special smartcard terminals located within the station. As the two railways are physically separated at Kansai Airport Station and have separate destinations away from the airport, care must be taken to board only trains for the same company as the purchased ticket.
