Yagi-nishiguchi Station (八木西口駅 Yagi-nishiguchi-eki?) is a railway station on the Kintetsu Kashihara Line, located in Kashihara, Nara, Japan. It is a typical small station, but has a unique status as a non-independent station. For a historical reason, the station is a part of Yamato-Yagi Station, a large intersection station located about 300 meters north of the station.

History[edit]

The station is the original site of Yamato-Yagi Station which opened here in 1923 and moved to the present location in 1929, when the railway company did not remove the original platforms of the station and continued the service with the old facilities as well as the new Yamato-Yagi Station. Yagi-nishiguchi Station is therefore treated as the same station with Yamato-Yagi Station in some occasions, such as calculation of distance-based fares. However, a travel between Yagi-nishiguchi Station and Yamato-Yagi Station costs 150 yen, even though it is a mere move within the station and walking the distance will take no longer than 5 minutes.
