HistoryEdit

Mikado Station was opened on August 16, 1903 as a freight station on the Bōsō Railway. Scheduled passenger operations began from January 14, 1905. On September 1, 1907, the Bōsō Railway was nationalized and became part of the Japanese Government Railways, which was transformed into the Japan National Railways (JNR) after World War II. Freight operations were discontinued on October 1, 1962. The station has been unattended since July 1, 1972. In 1985, the station building was torn down, and replaced by a modified freight container. The station was absorbed into the JR East network upon the privatization of the Japan National Railways on April 1, 1987. The station building burned down on November 30, 2005 and was replaced by the current structure.

Passenger statisticsEdit

In fiscal 2006, the station was used by an average of 123 passengers daily.[1]
