Onagawa Station has one bay platform, serving a single track, connected to the station building by a footbridge.
Onegawa Station opened on October 7, 1939. The station was absorbed into the JR East network upon the privatization of JNR on April 1, 1987. Operations were suspended after the tsunami on March 11, 2011 which destroyed the station building and nearby railway tracks.
Just over four years later, on March 21, 2015, the reconstructed Onagawa Station reopened marking the restoration of the entire Ishinomaki Line. The new station building features an integrated community center and public bathing facility on the upper floors. The building was designed by Pritzker Architecture Prize winning architect Shigeru Ban, who also contributed to the design of temporary housing structures in the town in the wake of the March 2011 tsunami.
