Yamamoto Station (山本駅?, Yamamoto-eki, station number: HK-52) is a railway station in Takarazuka, Hyōgo Prefecture, Japan, on the Hankyu Takarazuka Line operated by the Hankyu Railway.

The running in boards of the station also reads Hirai (平井?), the name of the station merged to this station in 1944, in parentheses and in small letters next to the official name Yamamoto.[1]



Two side platforms serve a track each on the first floor. Ticket gates are located under the ground level.

1  Takarazuka Line for Takarazuka, Nishinomiya-Kitaguchi, Imazu and Kōbe
2  Takarazuka Line for Ōsaka (Umeda), Minoo, Kyōto and Kita-Senri


The station opened on March 10, 1910, the day the Takarazuka Line started operation. Hirai Station opened October 23 the same year. On September 1, 1944, two stations were merged to a new station facility under the station name Yamamoto. The name Hirai was however retained in parentheses in response to the local community's request.[1]
