Fujine Station (富士根駅 Fujine-eki?) is a railway station on the Minobu Line of Central Japan Railway Company (JR Central) located in Fuji, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. It is 8.0 rail kilometers from the southern terminus of the Minubu Line at Fuji Station.

History[edit]

Fujine Station was opened on July 20, 1913, as one of the original Minobu Line stations for both passenger and freight services. It came under control of the Japanese Government Railway (JGR) on May 1, 1941. The JGR became the Japan National Railway (JNR) after World War II. Freight services were discontinued in 1972, the same year that the tracks from Fuji to Fujinomiya were expanded to a double track system. Along with the division and privatization of JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control and operation of the Central Japan Railway Company.

Lines[edit]

Layout[edit]

Fujine Station consists of a single island platform. The station building has automated ticket machines, automated turnstiles and has been unmanned since 1998. TOICA installation is scheduled for completion in 2010. A short shunt track from Track 1 allows for parking and storage of various maintenance of way equipment for the Minobu Line.
