The station first opened as “Masuda Station” in 1888, and adopted its present name “Natori Station” in 1963. It is served by the JR Tohoku Honsen Line, Joban Line, and the Sendai Airport Line. In order to meet the needs of the times, a new Natori station building with an East/West overhead passageway was completed in 2003. The building with the design concept, “Wings of Natori, which fly to the future” has a bright and open atmosphere which is appropriate for the face of Natori having an international airport.
On the west side of the station, the Poplar-tree lined street and “Sanekata” Street as well as a garden give you a sense of tranquility. In addition, the roundabout in front of the east entrance of the station highlights a modern Natori Station.
The Community Plaza in the station provides a library and Internet access.
