Yusu Station (柚須駅, Yusu-eki) is a train station on the Sasaguri Line operated by JR Kyushu in Kasuya Town, Kasuya District, Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan.[1]


The station is served by the Sasaguri Line and is located 2.5 km from the starting point of the line at Yoshizuka.[2] The station is sometimes depicted on maps and timetables as part of the Fukuhoku Yutaka Line, of which the Sasaguri Line is a component.

Station layout[edit]

The station consists of two side platforms serving two tracks. The original configuration had been an island platform serving two tracks but in late 2016, another side platform had been build on the other side of track 1 and platform 1 was moved across. The former platform 1 on the island ws fenced off, leaving platform 2 using the former island as a side platform. The station building is a two stprey structure. The whole of the top level and part of the bottom level serves as designated parking areas for bicycles. A small waiting room and a staffed ticket window is located on the lower level. Platform 1 is directly access from the station building while platform 2 is access by means of a level crossing.[2][3][4]

Management of the station has been outsourced to the JR Kyushu Tetsudou Eigyou Co., a wholly owned subsidiary of JR Kyushu specialising in station services. It staffs the ticket window which is equipped with a Midori no Madoguchi facility.[5][6]
