nihongo|Yotsuya Station|四ツ谷駅|Yotsuya-eki is a railway station in Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan, located on the boundary between Shinjuku and Chiyoda, adjacent to Sophia University and the State Guest-House, in the Yotsuya neighborhood.


Yotsuya opened in 1894 as a station on the Kobu Railway, the forerunner of the Chūō Line which was nationalized in 1906. Although the line was originally single-track, the segment passing through Yotsuya was double-tracked in 1895 and quadruple-tracked in 1929.

The Marunouchi Line station opened in 1959, and the Namboku Line station opened in 1996. (Yotsuya was the southern terminus of the line until the opening of Tameike-Sannō Station in 1997.)

*Tokyo Metro Marunouchi Line (Station number: M-12)
*Tokyo Metro Namboku Line (Station number: N-08)

All four lines at Yotsuya run north-south; however, the Chūō/Chūō-Sōbu Line and Marunouchi Line are mainly east-west lines, and somewhat counterintuitively, while northbound Chūō Line trains are bound for Tokyo and southbound trains are bound for Shinjuku, northbound Marunouchi Line trains are bound for Shinjuku and southbound trains are bound for Tokyo.
