The station consists of a single underground island platform on the second basement level, serving two tracks. The platforms are long enough to handle six-car trains, but as this station is served only by three-car Honancho branch line shuttle services, platform-edge doors are provided only for a three-car length, with steel fences provided along the remainder of the platform length.
There are two entrances to the station: Entrance 1 provides access to the west (terminating) end of the platforms via a concourse on the same second basement level, while Entrance 2 provides access to the east end of the platforms via a concourse on the first basement level. Toilet facilities are available on the Entrance 1 concourse.
