Obitsu Station (小櫃駅?, Obitsu-eki) is a railway station operated by JR East's Kururi Line located in Kimitsu, Chiba Prefecture Japan. It is 18.2 kilometers from the western terminus of the Kururi Line at Kisarazu Station.


Obitsu Station was opened on December 28, 1912 as a station on the Chiba Prefectural Railways Kururi Line. The line was nationalized into the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) on September 1, 1923. 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.


Station layout[edit]

Obitsu Station has a single side platform serving bidirectional traffic. The station formerly had dual opposed side platforms, but one platform is no longer in use, although its overgrown ruins can still be seen to one side of the station. The platform is short, and can only handle trains with a length of four carriages or less. The station is unattended.
