Sakudaira Station (佐久平駅 Sakudaira-eki?) is a railway station in Saku, Nagano, Japan, operated by the East Japan Railway Company (JR East).[2]


Sakudaira Station is served by the JR East Hokuriku Shinkansen high-speed line (formerly named the Nagano Shinkansen) from Tokyo to Kanazawa via Nagano, with direct Asama services to and from Tokyo and Nagano, and a small number of limited-stop Hakutaka services to and from Tokyo and Kanazawa. On the Shinkansen line, it is located 164.4 kilometers from Tokyo Station. It is also a stop on the local service Koumi Line and is located 71.5 kilometers from the starting point of that line at Kobuchizawa Station.

Station layout[edit]

The station has two opposed side platforms serving two tracks of the Hokuriku Shinkansen, with an elevated station building. There is also a single elevated side platform served by the single bidirectional track of the Komi Line, which cuts diagonally above the Shinkansen platforms, and which is connected to the station building by a passageway. The station has a Midori no Madoguchi staffed ticket office.[2]
