Hara Station (原駅?, Hara-eki) is a railway station in Numazu, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan, on the Tōkaidō Main Line. It is located 132.8 rail kilometers from Tokyo Station, and is operated by Central Japan Railway Company (JR Central).


Hara Station was opened on February 25, 1900 as part of the expansion of the Tōkaidō Main Line from Numazu Station to Yoshiwara Station. The original station building was rebuilt in 1948. Regularly scheduled freight services were discontinued from 1984, and charter freight from 1997; however, freight services continue along a privately held spur line to a freight terminal owned by Taiheiyo Cement a short distance from Hara Station.



Hara Station has a single side platform serving Track 1 and an island platform serving Track 2 and Track 3, connected to the station building by an overpass. Track 1 is not in regular use. The station building has automated ticket machines, TOICA automated turnstiles and a manned "Green Window" service counter.
