Yunoki Station (柚木駅, Yunoki-eki) is a train station of the Shizuoka-Shimizu Line in Aoi-ku, Shizuoka, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan.

Station History[edit]

Yunoki Station was established as Magarikane Station (曲金駅, Magarikane-eki) on December 9, 1908. It was renamed to Gokoku Jinjamae Station (護国神社前駅, Gokoku Jinjamae-eki) in 1942, due to its proximity to the Shizuoka Prefectural Gokoku Jinja, a Shinto shrine to the war dead, and branch of Yasukuni Shrine. The station received its present name after World War II.
