Ikenoue Station (池ノ上駅?, Ikenoue-eki) is a railway station on the Keio Inokashira Line in Setagaya, Tokyo, Japan, operated by the private railway operator Keio Corporation.

Lines[edit]

Ikenoue Station is served by the 12.7 km Keio Inokashira Line from Shibuya in Tokyo to Kichijōji. Located between Komaba-Tōdaimae and Shimo-Kitazawa, it is 2.4 km from the Shibuya terminus.[1]

Service pattern[edit]

Only all-stations "Local" services stop at this station.

Station layout[edit]

The station consists of a ground-level island platform serving two tracks.[2] It is an above-ground station, with the station building built above the tracks. In March 2006, the station underwent construction to improve accessibility. The station has two exits, so this construction installed three elevators, between the platform and concourse, between the concourse and north exit, and between the concourse and south exit. On the north-side exit there is only an elevator, and no stairs.

The toilets were previously located on the platform, but during the overall renovations of the station they were moved to the upper level, inside the ticket gates. At the same time, a multi-purpose toilet was added.
