Shin-Hamamatsu Station (新浜松駅 Shin-Hamamatsu-eki?) is a terminal train station on the Enshū Railway Line in Naka-ku, Hamamatsu, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. Hamamatsu Station servicing the Tōkaidō Main Line and Tōkaidō Shinkansen lines is a three-minute walk away.

Station history[edit]

Shin-Hamamatsu Station was established on September 1, 1927, as Asahimachi Station (旭日町駅 Asahimachi-eki?). Its reinforced concrete station building was also the headquarters of the Enshū Railway, and was regarded as one of the most modern buildings in Hamamatsu. It was destroyed during the bombing of Hamamatsu in World War II. The station was rebuilt after the war, and renamed Shin-Hamamatsu in 1953. The tracks were elevated in 1981, and a new station was constructed 100 meters to the northeast, closer to Hamamatsu Station. On the former site now stands the Hamamatsu Meitetsu Hotel. The associated Entetsu Department Store opened within the station building in 1988, and the station was modified to become barrier free in 2004.
