Matsuo Station (松尾駅 Matsuo-eki ) on the Hankyu Arashiyama Line is located a short walk from both the Katsura River and Matsuo Shrine in Kyoto. During the late fall, the Momiji trees that line the station provide a spectacular display of red, orange, and yellow leaves. The station is accessible by wheelchairs although passengers of Katsura-bound trains have to use a special gate for wheelchairs.
Kyoto Bus #3 to Kyoto Station also connects to the station.
The station opened on November 9, 1928, when the Arashiyama Line started operation. It was called Matsuo Jinja-mae Station (松尾神社前駅 Matsuo-jinja-mae-eki ), referring to Matsuo Shrine, until 1948.
