Chōfu Station (調布駅 Chōfu-eki?) is a railway station in Chōfu, Tokyo, Japan, operated by the private railway operator Keio Corporation.[1]

Lines[edit]

Chōfu Station is served by the Keio Line and Keiō Sagamihara Line as the junction of the two lines. It is located 15.5 kilometers from the starting point of the Keio Line at Shinjuku Station and is a terminus of the 22.6 kilometer Sagamihara Line.

Station layout[edit]

This station has two underground island platforms in the second basement (Tracks 1 and 2) and the third basement (Tracks 3 and 4). Ticket windows and gates are in the first basement.[2]

Platforms[edit]

1, 2  Keio Sagamihara Line Hashimoto
 Keiō Line Keiō Hachiōji, Takaosanguchi, Tama-Dōbutsu-kōen
3, 4  Keiō Line Meidaimae, Sasazuka, Shinjuku, the Toei Shinjuku Line
(including trains from the Sagamihara Line for Shinjuku and the Toei Shinjuku Line)

History[edit]

The station opened on April 15, 1913 when Keiō Electric Tramway opened its first section between Sasazuka and Chōfu.[3]

Recent development[edit]

Until 2012, Chofu Station was on the ground level and had busy grade crossings at either end for road traffic, while trains arriving from the Keio Sagamihara Line blocked both lines of the Keio Line as they enter the station. Keio Corporation resolved both these issues by grade separation of railway lines around the station area. Underground tracks opened on August 19, 2012.[4]
