|Former name||Takatsuki-machi Station|
|Present name since||1943|
|Line(s)||Kyoto Main Line|
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.
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 (meaning Takatsuki Town) and was changed to the present one in 1943 when the town obtained the city status.
The construction of the elevated station replacing the original ground-level station was completed in 1994.
The elevated station consists of three levels:
- 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.
