Manazuru Station (真鶴駅 Manazuru-eki?) is a railway station on the Tōkaidō Main Line of East Japan Railway Company in the town of Manazuru, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. The station is 95.8 rail kilometers from Tokyo Station.

Station history[edit]

Manazuru Station was opened on July 11, 1887 for both freight and passenger service on the Atami Line of the Japan National Railways. With the opening of the Tanna Tunnel, the Atami Line became the Tōkaidō Main Line on December 1, 1934. Regularly scheduled freight services were discontinued in 1970, and parcel services by 1972. Freight services were resumed in March 1987. With the dissolution and privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of the East Japan Railway Company. Automated turnstiles using the Suica IC Card system came into operation from November 18, 2001. Freight services were discontinued again in April 2007[1]
