Due to its location on the side of a steep hill, Atami Station is built on several levels. On the lowest level is the station building itself, with automated ticket machines, Suica automated turnstiles and a manned "Green Window" service counter. The Tōkaidō Main Line and Itō Line share one side platform and two island platforms with five tracks connected by an underpass to the station building. The Tōkaidō Shinkansen with two opposing side platforms is one level higher, and is connected to the non-express platforms by an underpass.
