Yui Station (由比駅 Yui eki?) is a railway station on the Tōkaidō Main Line of Central Japan Railway Company in Shimizu-ku, Shizuoka city, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. The station is 158.4 rail kilometers from Tokyo Station.

Station history[edit]

Although local residents had petitioned for a station when the section of the Tōkaidō Main Line connecting Shizuoka with Hamamatsu was completed. Yui Station was opened in 1889, the low population and proximity to Kambara Station led to the petition being rejected. However, with the growing importance of agricultural products (green tea, mikan) and Yui's importance as a fishing port, the request for a station was finally granted on April 15, 1916. Regularly scheduled freight service was discontinued in 1971.

Lines[edit]

Layout[edit]

Yui Station has two side platform serving Track 1 and Track 4, an island platform in between serving Track 2 and Track 3. The platforms are connected to the station building by an overpass. Track 1 and Track 4 are used only during peak hours to all express trains to pass. The station building has automated ticket machines, TOICA automated turnstiles and a manned "Green Window" service counter.
