Kizu Station (木津駅?, Kizu-eki) is a four-way junction station of West Japan Railway Company (JR West) in Kizugawa, Kyoto, Japan. Although the station is on the junction of three lines: the Nara Line, the Katamachi Line, and Kansai Main Line as of rail infrastructure, it is served by the Nara Line, the Gakkentoshi Line, and the Yamatoji Line in terms of passenger train services. Most of the Gakkentoshi Line train service terminates here, while some of it extends through the Nara Line to Nara Station.
