Kinomiya Station (来宮駅?, Kinomiya-eki) is a railway station on the Itō Line of the East Japan Railway Company, located in the central part of Atami, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan.

History[edit]

The area around the Kinomiya Station is landfill, from the previous rubble formed by the digging of the Tanna Tunnel. Kinomiya Station opened on March 30, 1935 when the section of the Itō Line linking Atami with Ajiro was completed. On April 1, 1987 along with division and privatization of the Japan National Railway, East Japan Railway Company started operating this station. The CTC center of the Itō Line used to be located at Kinomiya, but along with its renewal to one that includes the controller of tracks at Atami Station in autumn of 2006, it moved to Atami.

Station layout[edit]

The Tōkaidō Main Line runs parallel to the Itō Line through Kinomiya Station, but only Itō Line has a station at this location. The 0-km indicator of the Itō Line is located at this station, although the Itō Line “officially” starts at Atami. Kinomiya Station has a single island platform. The station building has automated ticket machines and Suica automated turnstiles, but its "Green Window" service counter was closed in 2007.
