Kuroishi Station (黒石駅 Kuroishi-eki?) is a terminal railway station on the Kōnan Railway Kōnan Line located in the city of Kuroishi, Aomori Prefecture, Japan. It is 16.8 kilometers from the southern terminus of the line at Hirosaki Station.

History[edit]

Kuroishi Station was opened on August 15, 1912 on the Japanese Government Railways Kuroishi Light Railway Line (黒石軽便線 Kuroishi-keiben-sen?). An adjacent Kōnan Kuroishi Station was built in 1950 for use by the Kōnan Line. On November 1, 1984, the Kuroishi Light Railway was sold to the Kōnan Railway, and the original Kuroishi Station was demolished. The station has been operated as a (kan'i itaku station) since November 1984. On April 1, 1986 a new station building was completed, and the station reverted to its original name. The Kuroishi Light Rail ceased operations on April 1, 1998.
