|Operated by||JR East|
Shizuhama Station (清水浜駅 Shizuhama-eki) was a JR East railway station located in Minamisanriku, Miyagi Prefecture, Japan. The blue-roofed station platform remained standing after the 2011 tsunami, however the adjacent railway bridge and track (southwest of the station) collapsed. Services have now been replaced by a provisional Bus Rapid Transit line.
Shizuhama Station had a single side platform serving traffic in both directions. The station was unattended.
Shizuhama Station opened on 11 December 1977. The station was absorbed into the JR East network upon the privatization of the Japan National Railways (JNR) on April 1, 1987. Operations were discontinued after the station was severely damaged by the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, and rail services have now been replaced by a Bus Rapid Transit Line.
