JR Nagase Station (JR長瀬駅 JR Nagase-eki?) is a railway station on the West Japan Railway Company (JR-West) Osaka Higashi Line in Higashiosaka, Osaka Prefecture, Japan. As of 2013, it is the only station on the Osaka Higashi Line without any train stations nearby.

Layout[edit]

The station has an island platform serving two tracks elevated.

1  Osaka Higashi Line for Hanaten
2  Osaka Higashi Line for Kyūhōji

History[edit]

The station was initially planned under the provisional name Kashida Station (柏田駅 Kashida-eki?). JR West preferred Nagase, a widely known place name, for the definite station name rather than obscure Kashida, but since there is a separate Nagase Station on Kintetsu Osaka Line, the station was finally named JR Nagase.

  • August 23, 2007 – Press release by JR West of the determination of the station name as JR Nagase[1]
  • March 15, 2008 – Opening of the station[2]
