Kururi Station (久留里駅 Kururi-eki) is a railway station operated by JR East's Kururi Line located in Kimitsu, Chiba Prefecture Japan. It is 23.6 kilometers from the western terminus of the Kururi Line at Kisarazu Station.
Kururi Station was opened on December 28, 1912 as the original eastern terminal station for the Chiba Prefectural Railways Kururi Line. The line was nationalized into the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) on September 1, 1923. The line was extended to Kazusa-Kameyama on March 25, 1936. The JGR became the Japan National Railways (JNR) after World War II. The station was absorbed into the JR East network upon the privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987.
Kururi Station has an island platform and a side platform serving three tracks. The station building is old, and dates from the original opening of the Kururi Line in 1912. It is one of the few full attended stations on the line.
