Shimokita Station (下北駅? Shimokita-eki) is a railway station on the Ōminato Line in the city of Mutsu, Aomori Prefecture, Japan, operated by East Japan Railway Company (JR East). It was also the terminal station for the Shimokita Kōtsu Company's Ōhata Line, which closed in 2001 and was replaced by a bus line.
Shimokita Station has a single ground-level island platform, of which only one side is in use, serving bidirectional traffic. The other side of the platform was formerly used for the now-defunct Ōhata Line. The station building is attended, and has a Midori no Madoguchi staffed ticket office as well as an automatic ticket machine.
Shimokita Station opened on December 6, 1939 as a station on the Japanese Government Railways (JGR). All freight operations were discontinued as of December 1, 1983. With the privatization of Japanese National Railways (JNR) on April 1, 1987, it came under the operational control of JR East. The station building was completely rebuilt in 2009.
In fiscal 2015, the station was used by an average of 194 passengers daily (boarding passengers only).
