Yatsu Station (Chiba)

Yatsu Station (谷津駅 Yatsu-eki ?) is a railway station operated by Keisei Electric Railway's Keisei Main Line located in Narashino, Chiba Prefecture Japan. It is 28.4 kilometers from the terminus of the Keisei Main Line at Keisei-Ueno Station.

History

Yatsu Station was opened on July 17, 1921 as Yatsu Kaigan Station (谷津海岸駅 Yatsu Kaigan-eki?). The station was renamed to Yatsu-Yūen Station (谷津遊園駅 Yatsu-Yūen-eki?) on April 10, 1936 after a nearby amusement park. The name reverted to Yatsu Kaigain in 1939, as part of the Japanese government’s austerity measures in the early stages of World War II, and reverted to Yatsu-Yūen Station on April 1, 1948. Yatsu-Yūen Amusement Park ceased operation on November 24, 1984, and the station was renamed to its current name. From 1985, the station ceased to be served by express trains.
