History

Funeral mourners in front of Kita-Senju Station in 1932

The JR East station opened on 25 December 1896.[2] The Tobu station opened three years later on August 27, with through services with the Hibiya Line commencing in 1962. The Tokyo Metro platforms opened as the initial northern terminus of the Chiyoda line in 1969. The Tsukuba Express station opened on August 24, 2005.

From 17 March 2012, station numbering was introduced on all Tobu lines, with Kita-Senju Station becoming "TS-09".[3]

The station facilities of the Hibiya and Chiyoda Lines were inherited by Tokyo Metro after the privatization of the Teito Rapid Transit Authority (TRTA) in 2004.[4]

Passenger statistics

In fiscal 2013, the JR East station was used by an average of 203,428 passengers daily (boarding passengers only), making it the tenth-busiest station operated by JR East.[1] In fiscal 2013, the Tokyo Metro Chiyoda station was used by an average of 283,962 passengers per day and the Tokyo Metro Hibiya station was used by an average of 291,466 passengers per day. Note that the latter statistics consider passengers who travel through Kita-Senju station on a through service as users of the station, even if they did not disembark at the station. The Chiyoda Line station is the third-busiest on the Tokyo Metro network which does not offer through services onto other lines.[5] The JR East passenger figures for previous years are as shown below.
