Kazusa-Azuma Station (上総東駅?, Kazusa-Azuma-eki) is a railway station operated by the Isumi Railway Company's Isumi Line, located in Isumi, Chiba Prefecture Japan. It is 5.2 kilometers from the eastern terminus of the Izumi Line at Ōhara.

History[edit]

Kazusa-Azuma Station opened on April 1, 1930 as a station on the Japanese Government Railway (JGR) Kihara Line. After World War II, the JGR became the Japanese National Railways (JNR). The station has been unattended since 1954, when scheduled freight operations were also discontinued. With the division and privatization of the Japan National Railways on April 1, 1987, the station was acquired by the East Japan Railway Company. On March 24, 1988, the Kihara Line became the Isumi Railroad Isumi Line.
