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.

Station[edit]

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.
