Groundbreaking ceremony held at Fukushima station near J-Village soccer center via The Japan Times


“In order for our region to be revitalized and become a new and attractive area, I hope that the reopening of J-Village and the building of the new station will make substantial contributions,” Naraha Mayor Yukiei Matsumoto said in a speech during the ceremony.

The station straddling Naraha and Hirono will be used only when events are held at the soccer center, which is a two-minute walk from the station.

The platform will be long enough to accommodate 10-car trains.

Opened in 1997, J-Village was used as a training field for Japan’s national team.

Following the March 2011 nuclear crisis at Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Inc.’s Fukushima No. 1 plant, the center served as a disaster response task base. Work to restore the facility began last year.

It will be used as a training camp site for Japan’s men’s and women’s teams ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics.

Railway station development work is estimated to cost ¥1.5 billion, paid for one-third each by a group of eight municipalities in the Pacific coastal area of Fukushima, the prefecture, and East Japan Railway Co.
