Takatsuki-shi Station (高槻市駅 Takatsuki-shi-eki?) is a train station on the Hankyu Railway Kyoto Line located in Takatsuki, Osaka Prefecture, Japan.

It is one of the main train stations of the city along with Takatsuki Station on the JR Kyoto Line.

Lines[edit]

All types of train services on the line stop at Takatsuki-shi as one of key stations along the line. Many trains from Osaka, especially those from the Sakaisuji Line, terminate at Takatsuki-shi.

History[edit]

The station opened on January 16, 1928, and served as the terminal of the Shin-Keihan Line until its extension to Kyoto in November 1928. The station name was originally Takatsuki-machi[1] (meaning Takatsuki Town) and was changed to the present one in 1943 when the town obtained the city status.[2]

The construction of the elevated station replacing the original ground-level station was completed in 1994.[2]

  • 1st level (ground): Ming Hankyu Takatsuki shopping center
  • 2nd level: Station facilities (concourses, ticket gates and offices) and Ming Hankyu Takatsuki shopping center
  • 3rd level: Platforms and tracks

There are two island platforms, each of which serves two tracks.
