Otsu Station (大津駅) is a JR train station on the JR Tokaido Main Line and Biwako Line in Otsu, Shiga Prefecture, Japan. Otsu Station is not located in the main part of the city and it has no connecting train lines. (To catch the Kosei Line, go to neighboring Yamashina Station in Kyoto). The prefectural capital is near the station, so it is mainly an administrative and business area. Shopping and amusement is centered at Hama-Otsu next to the lake, 15 min. walk or 5 min. by bus. The original Otsu Station opened in 1880 in Hama-Otsu. In 1921, it was moved to the present location.

The current Otsu Station building was built in 1975. After major renovations, the Otsu Station building reopened on Oct. 1, 2016 with a 60-bed capsule hotel (named Calendar Hotel and geared for foreign tourists), multilingual tourist information center, free rental bicycles, five restaurants, and an outdoor terrace and event space.

It takes 140 min. from Tokyo Station to Kyoto Station via Tokaido shinkansen Nozomi, then 10 min. from Kyoto Station. Otsu Station is 41 min. from Maibara Station
