Fujieda Station (藤枝駅 Fujieda-eki?) is a railway station in Fujieda, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan, on the Tōkaidō Main Line. It is located 200.3 rail kilometers from Tokyo Station, and is operated by Central Japan Railway Company (JR Central).

Station history[edit]

Fujieda Station was opened on April 16, 1889 when the section of the Tōkaidō Main Line connecting Shizuoka with Hamamatsu was completed. The city of Fujieda did not exist at that time, and the station was located in Aoshima Village. On April 27, 1889, a senior official of the Imperial Household Ministry, Hida Hamagoro was killed while attempting to jump onto a departing express train from the platform of Fujieda Station. At the time, trains on the Tōkaidō Main Line had no toilets, and the accident led to their introduction on May 10 of the same year. Fujieda became an interchange station with the establishment of services by the Sunen Line (駿遠線 Sunen-sen?) (the future Shizuoka Railway Company on November 16, 1913, and which opened a spur line to Ōigawa Town in 1914. Operations of the Shizuoka Railway were discontinued at Fujieda on October 1, 1970. Regularly scheduled freight service was discontinued in 1971.
