Yakuriguchi Station (八栗口駅, Yakuriguchi-eki) is a railway station on the Kōtoku Line in Takamatsu, Kagawa Prefecture, Japan. It is operated by JR Shikoku and has the station number "T21".[1][2]

Lines[edit]

The station is served by the JR Shikoku Kōtoku Line and is located 12.3 km from the beginning of the line at Takamatsu.[3] Only local services stop at the station.[4]

Layout[edit]

The station consists of two opposed side platforms serving two tracks. Track 1 on the north side is the through-track while track 2 is the passing loop. There is no station building and the station is unstaffed but shelters are provided on both platforms for waiting passengers. Bth platforms also have a "Tickets Corner" (a small shelter housing an automatic ticket vending machine). Separate ramps lead up to each platform from the access road. There is no direct link between the platforms and a nearby road level crossing must be used. Bicycle parking is provided underneath platform 2.[2][5][3]

History[edit]

Japanese National Railways (JNR) opened Yakuriguchi on 1 September 1961 as an added stop on the existing Kōtoku Line. With the privatization of JNR on 1 April 1987, JR Shikoku assumed control of the station. On 14 March 1998, the station was moved 300 m along the line further from Takamatsu.[6][7]
