History[edit]

The old Shin-Shizuoka Center

Shin-Shizuoka Station was opened on December 9, 1908 as Takajōmachi Station (鷹匠町駅?, Takajōmachi-eki). It was renamed “Shin-Shizuoka” on October 1, 1954. Shizuoka’s city tram system was discontinued in September 1962, and a large bus terminal was established at Shin-Shizuoka Station on May 10, 1966. The Shin-Shizuoka Center department store above the station was opened on May 15, 1966. This was closed and demolished at the end of January 2009, and a new, larger shopping complex called Cenova opened October 5, 2011.
