Shake Station (社家駅 Shake-eki?) is a train station in the town of Ebina, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. It is 11.6 rail kilometers from the terminal station of the Sagami Line, Chigasaki.

History[edit]

Shake Station was opened on July 15, 1926 as station on the Sagami Railway. On June 1, 1944, the Sagami Railway was nationalized and merged with the Japan National Railways. Scheduled freight services were discontinued in 1962, as were most passenger operations, with the station used primarily for train maintenance and schedule adjustment. On April 1, 1987, with the dissolution and privatization of the Japan National Railways, the station came under the operation of JR East. Automated turnstiles using the Suica IC card system came into operation from November 2001.
