Tomioka Station is served by the Jōban Line, located 247.8 kilometers from the official starting point of the line at Nippori Station. Operations on the Jōban Line to the north of the station, between Yonomori Station and Futaba Station, are currently suspended due to Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster. It is possible to reach Namie Station by a replacement bus.

Station layout

Tomioka Station opened on 23 August 1898.[1] With the privatization of Japanese National Railways (JNR) on 1 April 1987, the station came under the control of JR East.[1]

The station was destroyed by the tsunami from the 11 March 2011 Tōhoku earthquake. In January 2015, work started on dismantling the remains of the station building and footbridge.[2] On 14 September 2017, a train arrived at the station for the first time in over six years.[3] On 21 October 2017, rail services resumed between Tatsuta station and Tomioka station.[4]

Surrounding area

Tomioka was within the evacuation zone surrounding the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. Residents were not allowed to stay overnight in the area for six years time after the incident due to the high radiation levels in the period.
