Station history[edit]

Shiotsu Station first opened on December 15, 1910, as a station for both freight and passenger service on the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) Chūō Main Line. The JGC became the JNR after the end of World War II. Regularly scheduled freight services were discontinued in April 20, 1960. 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.



Shiotsu Station has a single island platform and a single side platform serving three tracks, connected to the station building by an overpass.
