HistoryEdit

 
The station forecourt in 1937

Narita Station opened on 19 January 1897[1] as a terminal station on the Narita Railway Company for both freight and passenger operations. The line was extended to Ajiki in 1902. The Chiba Prefectural Tako Line began operations on 1 July 1911, connecting Narita with Tako, Chiba.[citation needed] The Narita Railway was nationalised on 1 September 1920, becoming part of the Japanese Government Railway (JGR), and on 1 April 1927, the Chiba Prefectural Tako Line was renamed the Narita Railway Company Tako Line.[citation needed] This line stopped operations on 11 January 1944 due to wartime conditions, and was officially abolished in 1946. After World War II, the JGR became the Japan National Railways (JNR). The station building was reconstructed from 1977–1979.[citation needed] The station was absorbed into the JR East network upon the privatization of the Japanese National Railways (JNR) on 1 April 1987. The spur line to Narita Airport was completed on 19 March 1991.[citation needed]

Passenger statisticsEdit

In fiscal 2019, the station was used by an average of 16,103 passengers daily (boarding passengers only).[2]
