Oe Station (Kyoto Prefecture) (大江駅 (京都府))

Oe Station, located in Oe-cho of Fukuchiyama City, Kyoto Prefecture, is a railroad station on the Miyafuku Line, which is operated by Kitakinki Tango Railway (KTR).

Except for the terminal stations, it's the only station at which all trains on the line stop.

Station layout
Oe Station is an elevated facility with an island platform serving two tracks, one on each side.

The platform is equipped with a waiting room.

Consequent upon the electrification of railroads on March 16, 1996, construction work was implemented to make a separate railroad track for trains that pass the station without stopping, as well as to expand the platform.

The station building contains a store operated by the Oe Tourism Company, where local products such as Oni Manju (bean-jam rice buns) are sold.

Station surroundings
Ogre statues, gargoyles and mosaics of ogres are displayed in front of the station, based on the legendary ogres of Mt. Oe.
