Sōma Station (相馬駅 Sōma-eki?) is a railway station operated by East Japan Railway Company in Sōma, Fukushima, Japan.


Sōma Station is served by the Jōban Line, and is located 307.0 km from the official starting point of the line at Nippori Station. However, due to damage to the line caused by the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, trains from Sōma Station are able to travel only as far as Haranomachi Station. Full services are not expected to resume until after 2017.

Station layout[edit]

Sōma Station has two opposed side platforms connected to the station building by a footbridge. However, at present platform 2 is not in use. The station has a Midori no Madoguchi staffed ticket office.
