HistoryEdit

The station was opened by the Nara Electric Railway (奈良電気鉄道, Nara Denki Tetsudō) as Jōnangūmae Station (城南宮前駅) on November 15, 1928, when the railway started the operation between Kyoto and Momoyamagoryō-mae stations.[4] On April 1, 1940, the station was renamed Takeda Station. The Nara Electric Railway was merged into the Kintetsu Railway on October 1, 1963, so that the station belonged Kintetsu since then.[5][citation needed]

On June 11, 1988, when the extension of the Karasuma Line subway was completed[6] the station was moved to its current site where is about 350 meters north of the original location and was expanded to serve both Kintetsu and subway lines. At this time the station was handed from Kintetsu to the transportation bureau.[citation needed]
