Iwanami Station (岩波駅?, Iwanami-eki) is a railway station on the Gotemba Line in the eastern part of Susono, Shizuoka, Japan, operated by Central Japan Railway Company (JR Central).

Station layout[edit]

Iwanami Station has a single island platform. The station was originally located on a switchback, which was eliminated when the line was electrified in 1968, and the platform realigned; a vestigal remnant of the former switchback is retained as a side track to the north of the station. The station building has automated ticket machines, TOICA automated turnstiles and a "Midori no Madoguchi" ticket office, and is manned only during daytime hours. It is connected to the platform with an overpass.
