Lines

Tomioka Station is served by the Jōban Line, and is located 247.0 kilometers from the official starting point of the line at Nippori Station. However, operations on the Jōban Line between Tatsuta Station and Nittaki Station are suspended indefinitely due Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster.

Station layout

Tomioka Station formerly had one island platform and one side platform, connected by a footbridge. The station building had a Midori no Madoguchi staffed ticket office.

History

Yonomori Station was opened on 23 August 1898. The station was absorbed into the JR East network upon the privatization of the Japanese National Railways (JNR) on 1 April 1987. 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.

Surrounding area

Tomioka is within the evacuation zone surrounding the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. Since August 2012 it has been possible to enter the area, but remaining in the area overnight is prohibited due to high radiation levels.
