Kashima Station (鹿島駅, Kashima-eki?) is a railway station on the Joban Line in Minamisōma, Fukushima, Japan, operated by East Japan Railway Company.

Lines[edit]

Kashima Station is served by the Joban Line, and is located 294.4 km from the official starting point of the line at Nippori Station. However, due to damage to the line caused by the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, trains from Kashima are able to travel as far as Sōma Station to the north and Haranomachi Station to the south. Full services are not expected to resume until after 2017.

Station layout[edit]

Kashima Station has two opposed side platforms connected to the station building by a footbridge.

Platforms[edit]

1  Joban Line for Haranomachi
2  Joban Line for Sōma
