Hon-Hachinohe Station (本八戸駅 Hon-Hachinohe-eki?) is a railway station on the JR East Hachinohe Line located in the town of Hachinohe, Aomori Prefecture, Japan. It is 2.8 rail kilometers from the terminus of the Hachinohe Line at Hachinohe Station.


Hon-Hachinohe Station was opened on January 4, 1898 as Hachinohe Station (八ノ戸駅?) on the Nippon Railway. The Nippon Railway was nationalized on November 1, 1906 becoming part of the Japanese Government Railways (JGR), and a year later, on November 1, 1907, the station was renamed Hachinohe Station (八戸駅?). The JGR became the Japan National Railway (JNR) after World War II. In 1971, Shiriuchi Station (尻内駅 Shiriuchi-eki?) on the Tohoku Main Line was re-designated “Hachinohe Station”, and the existing Hachinohe Station was renamed “Hon-Hachinohe”. The station building was elevated and completely rebuilt in 1977. With the privatization of the Japan National Railways on April 1, 1987, it came under the operational control of JR East.
