Seibu-Chichibu Station is the terminus station of the Seibu Chichibu Line, and is located 19.0 km from the line's starting point at Agano.[1] Some Seibu trains continue to Mitsumineguchi Station on the Chichibu Main Line of Chichibu Railway via a crossover between the two lines. Some Seibu trains also run to Nagatoro Station in the opposite direction of the Chichibu Main Line, however those trains do not stop at Seibu-Chichibu Station due to the layout of the crossover track.

Ohanabatake Station on the Chichibu Main Line is within walking distance from this station.
