|Operated by||Watarase Keikoku Railway|
|Line(s)||Watarase Keikoku Line|
The station has a single side platform and an island platform; however, one side of the island platform is not in use for traffic, thus effectively the station has two opposed side platforms. On the unused portion of the island platform, two cars from a former Tobu Railway Type 1720 are permanently parked as a restaurant.

Gōdo Station opened on 6 September 1912 as a station on the Ashio Railway, but used the kanji “神土駅” to avoid confusion with the Kōbe Station in Hyōgo Prefecture. The kanji was changed to its present form on 29 March 1989 to match the local place name.
In popular culture
The station features in the final scene of the 2009 film Tenshi no Koi, but instead uses the station name "Furada" in its signage.
