Fuji Station (富士駅 Fuji-eki?) is an interchange railway station in Fuji, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. The station is 146.2 rail kilometers from Tokyo Station. Fuji is on the Tōkaidō Main Line and the Minobu Line of Central Japan Railway Company and is a freight terminal of the Japan Freight Railway Company.
In 1889, when the section of the Tōkaidō Main Line connecting Shizuoka with Kōzu was completed, stations were built at Suzukawa (Yoshiwara) and Iwabuchi (Fujikawa), with Kashima village in between without a train station. Due to the strong petition of the local residents, and political pressure applied by Oji Paper Company, who had established a paper mill nearby, a station was opened on April 21, 1909 and named “Fuji Station”. The terminus of the Minobu Line was established at Fuji Station on July 13, 1913. The station building was rebuilt in 1964. Container freight services began operations from 1994.
The Fuji Station has three island platforms serving six tracks, which are connected each other an overpass, which leads to station building, which is also constructed over the tracks. The station building has automated ticket machines, TOICA automated turnstiles and a manned "Green Window" service counter.
