History[edit]

The station 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?).[citation needed] The JGR became the Japanese National Railways (JNR) after World War II. In 1971, Shiriuchi Station (尻内駅 Shiriuchi-eki?) on the Tohoku Main Line was renamed "Hachinohe Station", and the original Hachinohe Station was renamed "Hon-Hachinohe". The station building was elevated and completely rebuilt in 1977.[1] With the privatization of JNR on April 1, 1987, it came under the operational control of JR East.

The station was again rebuilt from December 2014, with work completed on 31 July 2015.[1]

Passenger statistics[edit]

In fiscal 2015, the station was used by an average of 1,188 passengers daily (boarding passengers only).[2]
