History[edit]

The Senseki Line station in April 1990

Ishinomaki Station opened on October 28, 1912 on what would become the Ishinomaki Line. On November 22, 1928, Miyaden-Ishinomaki Station (宮電石巻駅) opened, served by the Miyagi Electric Railway (the present-day Senseki Line). On May 1, 1944, the Miyagi Electric Railway was nationalized and Miyaden-Ishinomaki Station was renamed Ishinomaki Station, resulting in two nearby stations both named Ishinomaki Station. On July 21, 1990, the Senseki Line and Ishinomaki Line were joined together at a single Ishinomaki Station.

Passenger statistics[edit]

In fiscal 2016, the station was used by an average of 3,327 passengers daily (boarding passengers only).[1]
