Karibasawa Station (狩場沢駅?, Karibasawa-eki) is a railway station on the Aoimori Railway Line located in the town of Hiranai, Aomori Prefecture, Japan. It is 38.1 rail kilometers from the terminus of the Aoimori Railway Line at Aomori Station.


Karibasawa Station was opened on January 4, 1894 as a station on the Nippon Railway. It became a station on the Tōhoku Main Line of the Japanese Government Railways (JGR), the pre-war predecessor to the Japan National Railways (JNR), after the nationalization of the Nippon Railway on November 1, 1906. Regularly scheduled freight services were discontinued in February 1962. With the privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the operational control of East Japan Railway Company (JR East).

The section of the Tōhoku Main Line including this station was transferred to Aoimori Railway on December 4, 2010.


Station layout[edit]

Karibasawa Station has an island platform and a side platform serving three tracks, connected the station building by an overpass. However, only tracks 1 and 3 are in use, and the rails for track 2 have been pulled up, giving the station an effective structure of two opposed side platforms. The small station building is unmanned.
