Tatsuta Station is served by the Jōban Line, and is located 240.9 km from the official starting point of the line at Nippori Station. However, due to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in 2011, operations were halted. Operations south of the station were resumed on June 1, 2014, however operations north remain suspended indefinitely.
On March 25, 1909, the station began operation. Passenger service began on April 25, 1909 after one month of freight service. The station was absorbed into the JR East network upon the privatization of the Japanese National Railways (JNR) on April 1, 1987.
On March 11, 2011, the station closed indefinitely following the Great East Japan earthquake and the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster. On June 1, 2014, the station resumed operation as a temporary terminus of the line.
Tatsuta is within the evacuation zone surrounding the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. Since August 2012 it has been possible to enter the area, but remaining in the area overnight is prohibited.
