Sengakuji Station (泉岳寺駅 Sengakuji-eki?) is a railway station in Minato, Tokyo, Japan.

It is entirely owned and operated by the Tokyo Metropolitan Bureau of Transportation, but also serves as the northern terminus of the Keikyu Main Line operated by the private railway operator Keikyu. The station is a major transfer point for passengers on the Toei Asakusa Line because most trains on the Asakusa Line switch to the Keikyu Line past Sengakuji: passengers must usually change trains at Sengakuji to reach Gotanda, Nishi-magome and other stations on the south end of the Asakusa Line. The station is designed with platforms shared between Keikyu and Asakusa Line trains to expedite this connection.

The station is named after Sengaku-ji, a nearby temple famous for housing the graves of the Forty-seven Ronin.


Sengakuji Station is served by the following lines.
