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.


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.

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.
