Japan Railway News

JR Central is disrupting operation on JR Iida Line (飯田線) between Misakubo Station (水窪, Shizuoka) and Hiraoka Station (平岡, Nagano) due to the effects of the heavy rain disaster in July, 2020. It will take about 3 months (as of July 15, 2020) to resume operation.

In addition, the extra 2-per-day train is operated on weekdays only between Misakubo Station and Ōzore Station (大嵐, Shizuoka), within the interrupted section.
