This elevated station, which has two side platforms and three tracks, is built on a curve, which results in large gaps between center doors and the platform. The gaps were almost wide enough to need gap fillers. By 2008, most of the station's gaps had been filled, but train announcements still warn passengers to "be careful of the gap between the platform and the train."

The station does not have a mezzanine. The station houses are at the same level as the platforms. The station was closed from July to November 2003 and was completely rehabilitated so it looks different from every other station on the route with the new white windscreen and black fencing. The ends of the platform are very narrow.[2]
