Sawara Station

Sawara Station (佐原駅 Sawara-eki) is a railway station operated by JR East’s Narita Line located in Katori, Chiba Prefecture, Japan. It is 40.0 kilometers from the terminus of the Narita Line at Sakura Station. Some trains for the Kashima Line originate at this station.


Sawara Station was opened on February 3, 1898 as a terminal station on the Narita Railway Company for both freight and passenger operations. The Narita Railway was nationalised on September 1, 1920, becoming part of the Japanese Government Railway (JGR). The line was extended to Sasagawa on November 10, 1931. After World War II, the JGR became the Japan National Railways (JNR). Scheduled freight operations were suspended from February 1, 1984. The station was absorbed into the JR East network upon the privatization of the Japan National Railways (JNR) on April 1, 1987. The station building was rebuilt from 2007-2011.



Sawara Station has a single bay platform serving two tracks, and an island platform, for a total of four tracks. The island platform is connected to the bay platform by an overpass.
