Station history[edit]

Higashi-Shizuoka Station opened on October 30, 1998 as part of an urban renewal redevelopment of a portion of the former Higashi-Shizuoka Freight Terminal. A large-scale convention center next to the train station opened in 1999. These developments were intended to encourage further investment towards the east of Shizuoka city centre.
