Station history[edit]

Maisaka Station was opened on September 1, 1888 when the section of the Tōkaidō Main Line connecting Hamamatsu Station with Ōbu Station was completed. It was originally named Magoori Station (馬郡駅 Magoori-eki?). It was renamed Maisaka on December 1, 1888, but the kanji spelling of its name assumed its present form only in 1940. Regularly scheduled freight service was discontinued in 1971.



Maisaka Station has a 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 used only during peak hours. The station building has automated ticket machines, TOICA automated turnstiles and a manned "Green Window" service counter.
