Shimōsa-Kōzaki Station

Shimōsa-Kōzaki Station (下総神崎駅 Shimōsa-Kōzaki-eki) is a railway station operated by JR East’s Narita Line located in Kōzaki, Chiba Prefecture, Japan. It is 31.6 kilometers from the terminus of the Narita Line at Sakura Station.

History

Shimōsa-Kōzaki Station was opened on February 3, 1898 as Kōri Station (郡駅 Kōri-eki) on the Narita Railway for both passenger and freight operations. The Narita Railway was nationalised on September 1, 1920, becoming part of the Japanese Government Railway (JGR). The station was renamed to its present name on April 1, 1957. After World War II, the JGR became the Japan National Railways (JNR). Scheduled freight operations were suspended from April 1, 1971. 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 in 1998.
