Yunoki Station (柚木駅 Yunoki-eki?) is a railway station on the Minobu Line of Central Japan Railway Company (JR Central) located in Fuji, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. It is 1.5 rail kilometers from the terminus of the Minobu Line at Fuji Station.

History[edit]

Yunoki Station was opened on July 1, 1931, as the Motoichiba Signal Depot (本市場停留場 Motoichiba Singoba?). It was elevated to full station status as the Motoichiba Station (本市場駅 Motoichiba-eki?) on October 1, 1938, when the Minobu Line was leased to the national government. It came under control of the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) on May 1, 1941. The JGR became the Japan National Railway (JNR) after World War II. In September 1961, the tracks from Fuji to Tatebori were double tracked, and the Motoichi Station building was demolished and relocated 1.5 kilometers to the east of its former site, at which time it was given its present name. 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.
