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 Stationin 1997.)

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.
The station has two
island platformswith four tracks.
