Higashi-Fusamoto Station (東総元駅?, Higashi-Fusamoto-eki) is a railway station operated by the Isumi Railway Company's Isumi Line, located in Isumi, Chiba Prefecture Japan. It is 19.6 kilometers from the eastern terminus of the Izumi Line at Ōhara Station.


Higashi-Fusamoto Station was opened on February 1, 1937 as a station on the Japanese Government Railway (JGR) Kihara Line. Initially, only gasoline-powered locomotives serviced the station. The station was closed on June 10, 1945. It reopened on June 10, 1946 as a station on the Japanese National Railways (JNR). With the division and privatization of the Japan National Railways on April 1, 1987, the station was acquired by the East Japan Railway Company. On March 24, 1988, the Kihara Line became the Isumi Railroad Isumi Line. In 2008, the station building was completely rebuilt as a project by TV Tokyo for the popular TV documentary show "Champions".
