Ayase Station (綾瀬駅 Ayase-eki?) is a railway station in Adachi, Tokyo, Japan, operated by East Japan Railway Company (JR East) and the Tokyo subway operator Tokyo Metro.

Lines[edit]

Ayase Station is served by the following two lines.

Ayase is the northern terminus of most Chiyoda Line services that do not continue to the Joban Line, as Kita-Ayase Station cannot accommodate trains longer than three cars. Tokyo Metro plans to expand Kita-Ayase Station to accommodate ten-car trains for through service to the Chiyoda Line beyond Ayase.[1]

The official boundary between the Joban Line and Chiyoda Line is located east of Ayase Station, past the turnoff for the Kita-Ayase branch of the Chiyoda Line. However, the segment of the Chiyoda Line between Ayase and Kita-Senju Station is treated as part of the Joban Line for fare calculation purposes when passengers do not travel on Tokyo Metro beyond Kita-Senju.

Ayase Station also serves as a turnaround point for the Odakyu 60000 series MSE Romancecar service through the Chiyoda Line, and is sometimes used as a delivery point for Tokyo Metro trainsets by rail; JR Freight transports the trainsets to Ayase during midnight hours, where Tokyo Metro takes delivery and hauls them to the nearby Ayase depot.

Station layout[edit]

The stations has a side platform serving one track and two island platforms serving three tracks.
