Tomioka Station (富岡駅 Tomioka-eki) is a railway station owned by East Japan Railway Company in Tomioka, Fukushima, Japan. Built in 1898, the station was destroyed by a tsunami in March 2011, and has been temporarily closed ever since.
Tomioka Station was served by the Jōban Line, and was located 247.0 kilometers from the official starting point of the line at Nippori Station. However, operations on the Jōban Line between Tatsuta Station and Nittaki Station are suspended indefinitely due Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster.
The station was destroyed by the tsunami from the 11 March 2011 Tōhoku earthquake. In January 2015, work started on dismantling the remains of the station building and footbridge. On 14 September 2017, a train arrived at the station for the first time in over six years.
Tomioka 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 due to high radiation levels.
