Next to the northNakashojima StationThe distance between stations is 4.4km, which is the longest on all Keihan Electric Railway lines.[Note 1][Note 2].


Large-scale river improvement following the Great Meiji Flood (June 1885) when the Keihan Main Line was constructed[Note 3]At that time, the area around Yodo Station was built with a large-scale design change.Taisho Taisho flood damage even after opening[2]-Muroto Typhoon-Typhoon No. 28 in 13It was a flood-prone area that was damaged by such things.During the ground station era, it was located in the southeastern part of the former Honmaru on the site of Yodo Castle.With the relocation of the station due to the elevated structure, Kyoto City has a basic plan to redevelop Yodo Castle Ruins Park.[3].

Elevated construction and associated fluctuations

It was decided to elevate1978/Since then, many times from the local residents' association, Kyoto City, Keihan Electric Railway,Japan Central Horse RacingThis is due to the request from (JRA) to elevate Yodo Station.This is around Yodo stationRailroad crossingElimination of traffic congestion on surrounding roads caused by[4]Not only congestion due to the audience at Kyoto Racecourse, etiquette violations and harassment[Note 4]There is also a character as a countermeasure for.JRA will bear 6% of the project cost of the elevated construction as a regional environment improvement project, and the remaining 4% will be split between Kyoto City and Keihan Electric Railway.A doorway directly connected to the racetrack was set up at the station. 1996 Kyoto City, Keihan Electric Railway, and JRA jointly start a survey on the elevated construction of Yodo Station and the commercialization of peripheral maintenance.[4]The restaurant / convenience store between the racetrack and Yodo station opposed that "the relocation of the station to the front of the racetrack is a vital issue", and the stores that had to evict due to the elevated construction requested an alternative land. However, in August 1999, after receiving a city planning decision, the construction was started in December of the same year with a business license.[5][6].

As a preliminary step2006/At the time of the Keihan Line timetable revision on April 4, the down line ticket gate was relocated to the direction of Demachiyanagi, about 16m.Along with this, the relative / island-type composite two-sided three-line platform has been changed to a relative staggered two-sided two-line platform.As a result, it became difficult to operate the train from the Yodo garage by turning back at this station and becoming a down train. The equivalent of the first train was changed to the first train at Kuzuha Station and the first train at Demachiyanagi Station / Sanjo Station.In addition, the temporary down train departing from Yodo Station was forwarded from the Yodo garage to Nakashojima Station Line 300 or the station detention line, and then returned to this station.

Some of the special trains that were in operation at the time of the horse race have also been reduced, and are being replenished by temporary stops of express trains and increased number of semi-express trains.note that2008/From the timetable revision on October 10, rapid express operation and temporary stop at this station started.[Note 5], Serves as a substitute for express trains whose number of trains has been significantly reduced in the same timetable (however, special express trains and special express trains may be operated on days when there is a high-ranking race).

The down line was switched to the elevated line from the first train on September 2009, 9.[7][4]..It has a three-story structure with the ticket gate on the second floor and the platform (lines 3 and 2) on the third floor.The down line station was directly connected to the Kyoto Racecourse by a deck.[Note 6]..Continued work to elevate the up line2011/On May 5, the up line was also elevated and three railroad crossings were abolished.[8][9][4]At the same time, the fare was revised due to the change in business distance due to the timetable revision and the relocation of the up line platform to 300m.[10][11]..In addition, as the rapid express was significantly reduced by the timetable revision on the same day, an express was set to end and end on Saturdays and holidays instead of the temporary stop of the rapid express.In addition, even after the ascending line was elevated, the first line (shelter line) was constructed on the ground line trace.2013/Started using from January[12]Construction work including the installation of a service line and bus terminal to the remaining Yodo garage and the maintenance of surrounding roads was completed by the end of 2013, and an hourly rental parking lot was opened under the overpass on the Osaka side.afterwards2014/From the autumn special timetable, the temporary stop of the Rapid Express, which was operated only one way at the time of the special timetable, was revived only on the horse racing date and the off-track betting date.2016/May 3From the revision, the rapid express operation will be resumed on Saturdays and holidays other than the special timetable implementation date (the special timetable will be abolished from 2016), and the horse racing date will be taken over from the temporary stop at the time of the special timetable implementation. And a temporary stop is carried out on the day when the off-site betting ticket is released.
