Suigō Station (水郷駅, Suigō-eki) is a railway station operated by JR East’s Narita Line located in Tōnoshō, Chiba Prefecture, Japan. It is 47.5 kilometers from the terminus of the Narita Line at Sakura Station.

History[edit]

Suigō Station was opened on November 10, 1931 as a station on the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) for both freight and passenger operations. After World War II, the JGR became the Japanese National Railways (JNR). Scheduled freight operations were suspended from October 1, 1962. The station has been unattended since July 1, 1970. The station was absorbed into the JR East network upon the privatization of the Japanese National Railways (JNR) on April 1, 1987. A new station building was completed in June 2009.
