Kioroshi Station (木下駅?, Kioroshi-eki) is a railway station operated by JR East’s Abiko Branch Line of the Narita Line located in Inzai, Chiba Prefecture Japan. It is 14.0 kilometers from the terminus of the Abibo Branch line at Abiko Station.

History[edit]

Kioroshi Station was opened on April 1, 1901 as a station on the Narita Railway Company for both freight and passenger operations. On September 1, 1920, the Narita Railway was nationalised, becoming part of the Japanese Government Railway (JGR). After World War II, the JGR became the Japan National Railways (JNR). Scheduled freight operations were suspended from October 1, 1974. The station was absorbed into the JR East network upon the privatization of the Japan National Railways (JNR) on April 1, 1987. The station building was rebuilt from 2007-2008.
