Rokujizō Station (六地蔵駅 Rokujizō-eki) refers to three different railway stations of the same name, located within the same vicinity in Rokujizo Naramachi, Uji, Kyoto, each operated by a different train company. Only the station of the Keihan Uji Line is located in Momoyamacho Inaba, Fushimi-ku, Kyoto. The station name means "Six Jizō".
Each of the following three lines has its own Rokujizō Station facilities.
Firstly, there is the relatively recent addition of a station at the terminus of the underground Tozai Line that runs from Uzumasa Tenjingawa Station in Kyoto down to the southeastern part of the city. Secondly, in proximity to the underground station is the station operated by West Japan Railway Company, on the Nara Line. Rapid trains from Kyoto now also stop here (in addition to the local trains) and the trip normally takes no longer than 12 minutes. Finally, approximately 150 meters from both the underground and JR station is the Rokujizo station operated by the Keihan Electric Railway.

The oldest railway in this area is the Nara Line which has been operating since 1896, but the history of Rokujizō Station began with the opening of the Keihan line in 1913 because the Nara Line did not have its station in Rokujizō until 1992.
The Keihan station opened on 1 June 1913. The present-day JR West station opened on 22 October 1992, and the subway station opened on 26 November 2004.
The surrounding area has a number of hotels, extensive shops, restaurants and amusement centers. It has undergone significant development in recent years as more people choose to live there or nearby and make use of the excellent transport links to Kyoto and Osaka.
