Ōtsuchi Station (大槌駅 Ōtsuchi-eki) is a JR East railway station located in Ōtsuchi, Iwate Prefecture, Japan. The station was washed away by the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami. Since that time, operations have been replaced by a provisional Bus Rapid Transit line. As of 2018, the station is being rebuilt along with the rest of the closed segment of the Yamada Line. It will be transferred to the Sanriku Railway upon completion.
