Lines

Nisshin Station is served by the Kawagoe Line between Kawagoe and Ōmiya, and is located 3.7 km from Ōmiya Station. Most trains continue beyond Ōmiya on the Saikyo Line to Shinjuku and Shin-Kiba. Services operate every 20 minutes during the daytime.

Station layout

The station has two side platforms serving two tracks, with an elevated station building.

History

The station opened on 22 July 1940. The line was electrified on 30 September 1985, from which date through-running began to and from the Saikyo Line. With the privatization of Japanese National Railways (JNR) on 1 April 1987, the station came under the control of JR East.

From March 2010, rebuilding work started, adding new entrances on both north and south sides of the station, with escalators leading up to a section in front of the gate, bridging over the two train platforms. New elevators were added, as well as new toilets, one inside and one outside, next to the north entrance. The old entrance was closed, and the new station building was completed during 2011.

Passenger statistics

In fiscal 2014, the station was used by an average of 13,157 passengers daily. The passenger figures for previous years are as shown below.
