History[edit]

Kashima Station opened on 3 April 1898. With the privatization of JNR on 1 April 1987, the station came under the operational control of JR East. Due to damage to the line caused by the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, trains from Kashima were able to travel as far as Sōma Station to the north and Haranomachi Station to the south. Services south towards Odaka station resumed in July 2016. Full services to the north resumed in December 2016. Service was extended to Namie resumed on 1 April 2017 [1]. Services between Namie and Tatsuta remain suspended until at least the year 2020.[2]
