Yasoba Station (八十場駅, Yasoba-eki) is a railway station on the Yosan Line in Sakaide, Kagawa Prefecture, Japan. It is operated by JR Shikoku and has the station number "Y07".[1][2]

Lines[edit]

The station is served by the JR Shikoku Yosan Line and is located 18.6 km from the beginning of the line at Takamatsu.[3] Only local services stop at the station. In addition, although Tadotsu is the official start of the Dosan Line, some of its local trains start from and return to Takamatsu. These trains also stop at Yasoba.[4]

Layout[edit]

The station consists of two opposed side platforms serving two tracks. There is no station building but weather shelters are provided on both platforms for waiting passengers. The station is unstaffed but a "Tickets Corner" (small shelter housing an automatic ticket vending machine) is installed. Ramps lead up to each platform from the access road. There is no direct link between the platforms. A road level crossing at the end of the ramps is used to cross from one platform to the other. A designated parking space for bicycles is provided near the station.[2][3][5]

History[edit]

The station opened on 27 January 1952 as an additional stop on the existing Yosan Line. 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.[6][7]
