Station history[edit]

Shimada Station was opened on April 16, 1889 when the section of the Tōkaidō Main Line connecting Shizuoka with Hamamatsu was completed. Regularly scheduled freight service was discontinued in 1984, but continued on a charter service until 1993.



Shimada Station has an island platform serving Track 1 and Track 2, and a side platform serving the seldom-used Track 3. The platforms are connected to the station building by an overpass. The station building has automated ticket machines, TOICA automated turnstiles and a manned "Green Window" service counter.
