Yamashita Station (山下駅 Yamashita-eki?) is a railway station on the Joban Line in Yamamoto, Miyagi Prefecture, Japan, operated by East Japan Railway Company (JR East). It has been closed since the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami in March 2011, when the station building was severely damaged. It is scheduled to reopen at a new location in December 2016.
