Description - 解説

Single track, single side platform; unmanned passenger-only halt. The forests in the area between the Kuragawa Bridge and the Funako Tunnel are mainly beech.

The aerial image below shows the approximate location of the original Funako Halt (on the yellow line), and the spot to where it was relocated when the new alignment was built in 1980 (on the orange line). When the station was moved, the original small waiting shelter built in 1968 was moved to the new spot.
