Iizaka Onsen (飯坂温泉駅 Iizaka Onsen Eki?) is a railway station located in the township of Iizaka in Fukushima, Fukushima, Japan. It is the final station on Fukushima Transportation's Iizaka Line.

Station layout[edit]

Surrounding area, including the Surikami River

Iizaka Onsen is a manned two-platform single-track above-ground station. Passengers generally, facing the direction of Fukushima Station (south), disembark trains to the left-side platform and board from the right-side platform, however during winter the left-side platform is used for both disembarking and boarding.

The ground-level floor of the building contains a Sunkus convenience store, a small vegetable shop., and a Fukushima Shinkin Bank ATM. The basement level contains the ticket gate and platforms, the station office, the waiting room, and toilets. Tickets are purchased via automated ticket machines, however tickets are checked manually by a station employer when a train's arrival/departure time is near. Generally, passengers are only allowed on the platforms when a train is present.

The station is located next to the Surikami River.

History[edit]

The station commenced operations on March 23, 1927.

From 1908 to 1967, the Fukushima Kōtsū Iizaka East Line's Yuno-machi Station (湯野町駅 Yuno-machi Eki?) was a five-minute walk away, but it was shut down when the Iizaka East line closed.

Iizaka Onsen Station's building was renovated in 2010, and the new look was revealed on December 20, 2010.
