Lines[edit]

Seibu-Chichibu Station is the terminus station of the Seibu Chichibu Line, and is located 19.0 km from the line's starting point at Agano.[1] Some Seibu trains continue to Mitsumineguchi Station on the Chichibu Main Line of Chichibu Railway via a crossover between the two lines. Some Seibu trains also run to Nagatoro Station in the opposite direction of the Chichibu Main Line, however those trains do not stop at Seibu-Chichibu Station due to the layout of the crossover track.

Ohanabatake Station on the Chichibu Main Line is within walking distance from this station.

Station layout[edit]

The station consists of one island platform and one side platform serving three tracks. The side platform is adjacent to the station building, which is connected to the island platform by a footbridge.
