Fukuiguchi Station (福井口駅?, Fukuiguchi-eki) is an Echizen Railway railway station located in Fukui, Fukui Prefecture, Japan. It serves the Katsuyama Eiheiji and Mikuni Awara lines.


All Katsuyama Eiheiji Line and Mikuni Awara Line trains serve Fukuiguchi Station. The station was relocated from September 27, 2015 for a construction purpose. There is one island platform with two tracks.[1]

The station is staffed at all times. There is a railyard nearby, but the former owner Keifuku Electric Railway asked for it to be returned, so a new yard is being constructed in a space between the JR Hokuriku Main Line and the Mikuni Awara Line.[citation needed]

Until 2015[edit]

The original station was to the north of the current station.[1] There were two island platforms and one other platform with a total of five tracks.
