History

Iidabashi Station (飯田橋駅, Iidabashi-eki) is a major interchange railway station which straddles Tokyo's Chiyoda, Shinjuku and Bunkyō wards. It was originally built as Iidamachi Station (albeit in a slightly different location), terminus of the then Kōbu Railway, precursor to today's Chūō Line. The Ōedo Line addition to the station in 2000 was designed by architect Makoto Sei Watanabe. [1]

The JR East station has one island platform, serving the up and down local lines; there is no platform for the parallel rapid double track (for longer-distance commuter and express Chūō Line trains). The station is located on the inside of the Outer Moat. It is elevated over Mejiro-dori, a major thoroughfare from the Imperial Palace towards Ikebukuro.

History[edit]

The present-day JR East station opened on 15 November 1928.[2]

Future developments[edit]

The JR East platforms are scheduled to be moved and rebuilt a distance of approximately 200 m along the line toward Shinjuku to eliminate the gaps between trains and platforms on the sharply curved (300 m radius) section of track.[3][4]
