Station layout[edit]

Jimmachi Station originally had one island platform and one side platform; however, with the completion of the Yamagata Shinkansen, the island platform was removed to make way for tracks for the through traffic of the Shinkansen, leaving the station with a single side platform for bi-directional traffic. The station is unattended.
