Tsukuda Station (佃駅, Tsukuda-eki) is a railway station in Miyoshi, Tokushima Prefecture, Japan, operated by JR Shikoku.[1][2]

Lines[edit]

The station is served by the following JR Shikoku lines:

  • Dosan Line - as station number "D21", 76.7 km (47.7 mi) from the start of the line at Tadotsu ("D12").[3]
  • Tokushima Line - as station number "B24", 67.5 km (41.9 mi) from the start of the line at Sako ("B01").[4] On 18 July 1962, Tsukuda was designated the official end of the Tokushima Line[5] but trains continue to run on the Dosan track to the next station at Awa-Ikeda.

Only local trains from both lines stop at the station.[6]

Layout[edit]

The station consists of an island platform serving two tracks. A small building on the side of the access road serves as a waiting room. An overhead footbridge gives access to the island platform which has a weather shelter.[2]

History[edit]

Tsukuda Signalbox (佃信号場) was established on 28 April 1929 as a junction between the Tokushima Line and the Sanyo Line (now Dosan Line) which had been extended southwards from Sanuki-Saida. On 10 January 1950, it was upgraded as Tsukuda Station and passenger services commenced. At this time the station was operated by Japanese National Railways (JNR). With the privatization of JNR on 1 April 1987, control of the station passed to JR Shikoku.[3][7]
