Hanakuma
(Kobe Kosoku Line)

Hankyu Railway’s station was established in 1936, and as its terminal within the city, was initially referred to as “Kobe”.

The original station building was noted for its Art Deco architecture and a grand arch through which trains passed on their approach to the station; this was damaged beyond repair in the 1995 Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake and was replaced by a temporary structure, which remained in use until 2020. A new high-rise building is now under construction, mimicking the design of the original station building, but lacking the arch over the tracks.

Layout

This station has two island platforms with three tracks elevated close to JR Sannomiya Station.

1  Kobe Kosoku Line (Line 1) for Shinkaichi and the Sanyo Railway Main Line (Akashi, Himeji)
2 Kobe Kosoku Line(Line 2) for Shinkaichi and the Sanyo Railway Main Line (Akashi, Himeji)
