Shindaita Station (新代田駅 Shindaita-eki?) is a railway station on the Keio Inokashira Line in Setagaya, Tokyo, Japan, operated by the private railway operator Keio Corporation.

Lines[edit]

Shindaita Station is served by the 12.7 km Keio Inokashira Line from Shibuya in Tokyo to Kichijōji. Located between Shimo-Kitazawa and Higashi-Matsubara, it is 3.5 km from the Shibuya terminus.[1]

Service pattern[edit]

Only all-stations "Local" services stop at this station.

Station layout[edit]

The station has two ground-level opposing side platforms on either side of the two tracks, which are side by side.[2] The station building is built above the tracks. The platforms, however, are built in a cutting, over which runs prefectural road 318 (Kannana Doori Ave (環七通り kannana dōri?); for this reason part of the platform is located under this road. The ticket gates are located alongside the road.

Between the ticket gates and platform there is a wheelchair escalator as well as an elevator. The toilets are located on platform 1, and include a multi-purpose toilet.

History[edit]

The station first opened on August 1, 1933, as Daita-Nichōme Station (代田二丁目駅?). It was renamed Shindaita on July 21, 1966.[1]

From February 22, 2013, station numbering was introduced on Keio lines, with Shindaita Station becoming "IN06".[3]

Passenger statistics[edit]

In fiscal 2011, the station was used by an average of 8,288 passengers daily.[4]

The passenger figures for previous years are as shown below.

Fiscal year Daily average
1999 9,159[1]
2010 8,317[4]
2011 8,288[4]

Surrounding area[edit]

Shindaita Station is only some 500 m from Shimo-Kitazawa and Higashi-Matsubara stations on either side. From the middle of the Shibuya-bound platform, one can actually see both of the neighboring stations. Perhaps because Shimo-Kitazawa is only a few minutes away on foot and because just outside the station is Kannana Dori Avenue, there is no shopping street by the station.
