Tatebori Station (竪堀駅 Tatebori-eki?) is a railway station on the Minobu Line of Central Japan Railway Company (JR Central) located in Fuji, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. It is 2.8 rail kilometers from the southern terminus of the Minobu Line at Fuji Station.


Tatebori Station was opened on March 8, 1926 as the Tatehori Signal Depot (竪堀停留場 Tatehori singoba?). It was elevated to full station status on November 5, 1927 for both passenger and freight services. When the Minobu Line was leased to the national government from October 1, 1938, the station was renamed “Tatebori”. It came under control of the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) on May 1, 1941. The JGR become the JNR (Japan National Railways) after World War II. Freight services were discontinued in 1969. The same year, the tracks from Fuji to Tatebori were double tracked, and the Tatebori Station building was demolished and relocated 400 meters to the east of its former site. Along with its division and privatization of JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control and operation of the Central Japan Railway Company.



Tatebori Station consists of elevated dual opposing side platforms. The ground-level station building has automated ticket machines, automated turnstiles and a manned service counter. Installation of TOICA was completed in 2010.
