Gendōji Station (源道寺駅 Gendōji-eki?) is a railway station on the Minobu Line of Central Japan Railway Company (JR Central) located in Fujinomiya, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. It is located 9.3 rail kilometers from the southern terminus of the Minobu Line at Fuji Station.

History[edit]

Gendōji Station began as Gendōji Signaling Depot (源道寺停留場 Gendōji singoba?) on December 25, 1930, as part of the original Minobu Line. When the line was leased to the national government from October 1, 1938, it was elevated to Gendōji Station for both passenger and freight services. It came under control of the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) on May 1, 1941. The JGR became the JNR (Japan National Railway) after the end of World War II. Freight services were discontinued in 1971, 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.
