Ninomiya Station (二宮駅, Ninomiya-eki) is a railway station on the Tōkaidō Main Line of the East Japan Railway Company in the town of Ninomiya, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. The station is 73.1 rail kilometers from Tokyo Station.
Ninomiya Station first opened on April 15, 1902, as a station for both freight and passenger service on the Tōkaidō Main Line. The initial station was destroyed on March 10, 1945, in an American air raid during World War II.
Regularly scheduled freight services were discontinued in 1971, and parcel services by 1972. The current station building was completed in October 1982. 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.
