Shisui Station (酒々井駅, Shisui-eki) is a railway station operated by JR East’s Narita Line located in Shisui, Chiba Prefecture, Japan. It is 6.4 kilometers from the terminus of the Narita Line at Sakura Station.

History[edit]

Shisui Station was opened on January 19, 1897 as a station on the Narita Railway Company for both freight and passenger operations. The Narita Railway was nationalized on September 1, 1920, becoming part of the Japanese Government Railway (JGR). After World War II, the JGR became the Japan National Railways (JNR). Scheduled freight operations were suspended from November 1, 1961. The station has been unattended since March 15, 1974. The station was absorbed into the JR East network upon the privatization of the Japan National Railways (JNR) on April 1, 1987. A new station building was completed in 1989, and the station was once again manned.
