Hayakawa Station (早川駅? Hayakawa eki) is a railway station on the Tōkaidō Main Line of East Japan Railway Company in Odawara, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. The station is 86.0 rail kilometers from Tokyo Station.
Hayakawa Station first opened on December 21, 1922, when the section of the Atami-Odawara Line connecting Odawara with Manazuru was completed. From December 1, 1934 this became the Tōkaidō Main Line. Regularly scheduled freight services were discontinued in 1959, and parcel services by 1972. With the dissolution and privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of the East Japan Railway Company. Automated turnstiles using the Suica IC Card system came into operation from November 18, 2001. The “Green Window” service counter was discontinued from 2007.
Hayakawa Station has a single island platform, connected to the station building by an overpass. The platform is too short to accommodate trains longer than 15 cars in length, so a door cut system is employed.
