Tram at platform, April 2014

The Takaoka Station (高岡駅, Takaoka-eki) is a city tram station on the Takaoka Kidō Line located in Takaoka, Toyama Prefecture, Japan. This tram stop was created in order to service the shopping area between Katahara-machi and Otaya Avenue, and to service JR West's Takaoka Station.

It was called Takaoka-Eki-mae Station (高岡駅前駅, Takaoka-eki-mae-eki) before the platform was relocated from the street to the first (i.e. ground) floor of the railway station building on March 29, 2014.

Name[edit]

Unlike other station names of the Manyōsen, the word "Station," which refers to the JR station, is a part of the name of the tram stop.[1]

Structure[edit]

There are two platforms served by two tracks.[2]
