Nishinomiya-Kitaguchi Station (西宮北口駅, Nishinomiya-kitaguchi-eki, station number: HK-08) is a railway station of Hankyu Railway in Nishinomiya, Hyōgo Prefecture, Japan.


It is one of the main stations in Nishinomiya City, with Hanshin Nishinomiya Station and JR Nishinomiya Station.


  • Hankyu Kobe Line
  • Hankyu Imazu Line
  • The platforms of Hankyu Imazu Line to Takarazuka Station, northbound, and Imazu Station, southbound are separated, and so there are no through trains from Takarazuka to Imazu.


  • Kobe Line: 2 island platforms and 2 side platforms serving 2 tracks each.
  • Imazu Line (south): an elevated side platform serving a track.
  • Imazu Line (north): 3 dead-end platforms serving 2 tracks.
  • History

    The station opened on July 16, 1920 when the Kobe Main Line opened. The Imazu Line opened the next year.

    Past layout

    There were four 90-degree diamond crossings served by the Kobe Line and the Imazu Line until they were removed in 1984 to build the new station building. The crossings were located in the south of the platforms for the Imazu Line, between the westbound platforms and the eastbound platforms for the Kobe Line.

  • Kobe Line westbound platforms: on the east side of the Imazu Line, an island platform serving 2 tracks with a side platform for arrivals in the south.
  • Kobe Line eastbound platforms: on the west side of the Imazu Line, an island platform serving 2 tracks with a side platform for arrivals in the north.
  • Imazu Line: on the north side of the Kobe Line, a side platform and a dead-end platform serving 4 tracks, one of which tracks was removed in 1977.
