Izumi-Chūō Station (泉中央駅 Izumi-Chūō eki) is a terminal underground metro station on the Sendai Subway Nanboku Line in Izumi-ku, Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture, Japan. In addition to being the northern-most subway station on the line, there is a large bus terminal for commuters to continue on towards the farthest reaches of Sendai, as well as neighboring towns such as Rifu and Tomiya.The area around Izumi-Chūō Station is highly commercial, with many shops, restaurants, night clubs, and other amenities.
Due to traffic congestion near the only exit of the original station, the city undertook a construction project to extend the underground passageway to an area which could facilitate more vehicles. That project was finished in 2005.
Izumi-Chūō Station is an underground station with a single island platform serving two tracks.
