Bunsui Station (分水駅, Bunsui-eki) is a railway station in Tsubame, Niigata, Japan, operated by East Japan Railway Company (JR East).



Bunsui Station is served by the Echigo Line, and is 41.5 kilometers from terminus of the line at Kashiwazaki.

Station layout

The station consists of two ground-level side platforms serving two tracks. However, one of the platforms is not normally used. The platforms are connected by an underground passageway. The station has a Midori no Madoguchi staffed ticket office.


The station opened on 28 December 1912 as Jizodo Station (地蔵堂駅, Jizo-do-eki). It was renamed to its present name on 1 April 1983. With the privatization of Japanese National Railways (JNR) on 1 April 1987, the station came under the control of JR East. A new station building was completed March 2000.
