[[{{{1}}} Station|{{{1}}}]]

Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]


This template expands a name (first parameter) to link to the appropriate railway station article, without displaying "Station".

Optionally, a second parameter can be included to show different text from the station name.

The third parameter is used to distinguish between identically named stations in different locations. (With respect to Japan, this is typically the prefecture level administrative division.)

The template can be abbreviated as {{RwsJ}} or {{rwsj}} (for railway station in Japan).


{{ja-stalink|Yokohama}} expands to [[Yokohama Station|Yokohama]]
{{RwsJ|Tokyo|Tōkyō}} expands to [[Tokyo Station|Tōkyō]]
{{rwsj|Jiyūgaoka||Tokyo}} expands to [[Jiyūgaoka Station (Tokyo)|Jiyūgaoka]]

Discretion should be used on whether to name the place itself or the station that serves it. In railway articles it is generally preferred to use the station unless specifically talking about the place, for example that Tokyo Disneyland serves the Tokyo Disneyland amusement park.

Almost all Japanese stations follow the link form of terminating with "Station".
