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.


The station has an island platform serving two tracks elevated.

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


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]
