Kōyōen Station (甲陽園駅 Kōyōen-eki?) is a railway station on the Hankyū Kōyō Line in Nishinomiya, Hyōgo, Japan, operated by the Hankyu Railway.

Lines[edit]

Kōyōen Station is the terminus of the 2.2 km Hankyū Kōyō Line from Shukugawa.

Due to the large number of commuters using the station in the mornings, the second platform and a smaller entrance on the east side of the station are used for boarding outgoing trains. Those leaving the train use the main platform. Also because of the large amount of students exiting at Kōyōen Station for nearby schools the exit gate is left open allowing those students holding commuter passes to exit without going through the turnstiles.
