Nishi-Urakami Station (西浦上駅, Nishi-Urakami-eki) is a railway station in Nagasaki, Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan. It is operated by JR Kyushu and is on the Nagasaki Main Line.[1][2]


The station is served by the old line or the Nagayo branch of the Nagasaki Main Line and is located 20.6 km from the branch point at Kikitsu.[3] Only local trains run on this branch.[4]

Station layout[edit]

The station consists of a side platform serving a single track at grade. There is no station building. A small shed on the platform houses a ticket window which is, however, now unstaffed. An automatic ticket vending machine and a weather shelter are provided.[3][2]
