Nagahara Station (永原駅) is a JR train station in Nagahama, Shiga Prefecture on the JR Kosei Line operated by West Japan Railway Company (JR West).

The loghouse is a common building design, but Nagahara has a good reason to use it. Before railroads were built, this area was a port town teeming with wooden maruko-bune boats plying across Lake Biwa between Otsu and this area of northern Lake Biwa. The trademark of maruko-bune was a semi-round log (maruko) along the sides of the boat. Nearby is the Maruko-bune Museum. The station building was rebuilt in April 2000.
