Yoshinari Station (吉成駅, Yoshinari-eki) is a railway station on the Kōtoku Line in Tokushima, Tokushima Prefecture, Japan. It is operated by JR Shikoku and has the station number "T02".[1][2]

Lines[edit]

The station is served by the JR Shikoku Kōtoku Line and is located 68.2 km from the beginning of the line at Takamatsu.[3] Only trains from local services stop at the station. In addition, although Ikenotani is the official start point of the Naruto Line, many of the trains of its local service begin and end at Tokushima. These trains also stop at Yoshinari.[4]

Layout[edit]

The station consists of two side platforms serving two tracks. The station building is unstaffed and serves only as a waiting room. Access to the opposite platform is by means of a footbridge. A siding runs on the other side of platform 2.[2][5][3]

History[edit]

The station was opened by the privately-run Awa Electric Railway (later the Awa Railway) on 1 July 1916. After the Awa Railway was nationalized on 1 July 1933, Japanese Government Railways (JGR) took over control of the station and operated it as part of the Awa Line. On 20 March 1935, the station became part of the Kōtoku Main Line. With the privatization of JNR on 1 April 1987, the station came under the control of JR Shikoku.[6][7]
