Iwaizumi Station (岩泉駅, Iwaizumi-eki) was a railway station on the Iwaizumi Line in Iwaizumi, Iwate, Japan, operated by East Japan Railway Company (JR East).


Iwaizumi Station was the terminus of the Iwaizumi Line, and was located 38.4 rail kilometers from the starting point of the line at Moichi Station.[1]

Station layout[edit]

The station had a single side platform serving traffic in both directions, connected to a two-story station building. The platform was designed as an island platform as there were plans to connect the station to the Kira Rias Line, but no track was laid on one side of the platform.
