Hitotsubashi-Gakuen Station (一橋学園駅 Hitotsubashi-Gakuen eki?) is a railway station in Kodaira, Tokyo, Japan.

Lines[edit]

Hitotsubashi-Gakuen Station is served by the 9.2 km Seibu Tamako Line from Kokubunji in Kokubunji, Tokyo to Seibu-Yūenchi in Higashimurayama, Tokyo. It is located 2.4 kilometers from the terminus of the line at Kokubunji Station.

Platforms[edit]

1  Seibu Tamako Line for Hagiyama and Seibu-Yūenchi
2  Seibu Tamako Line for Kokubunji

Station layout[edit]

The station has a single island platform on a north-south axis, serving two ground-level tracks. The Seibu Tamako Line is single-track most of its length, and dual track at Histotsubashi-gauken Station is used to allow trains travelling in opposite directions to pass each other. Thus, a train arriving in the station will wait at the platform for a train to stop at the opposite platform before departure. The station has entrances-exits at both ends of the platform (North and South). Passengers are able to cross to the platform island by means of small level crossings after the automatic ticket wicket gates. Passengers then climb steps (south) or a ramp (north) to platform level.
