Zushi Station (逗子駅 Zushi-eki?) is a railway station on the Yokosuka Line in Yokosuka, Kanagawa, Japan, operated by East Japan Railway Company (JR East).

Lines[edit]

Zushi Station is served by the Yokosuka Line and also by Shōnan-Shinjuku Line through services. It lies 8.4 kilometers from the junction at Ōfuna Station, and 57.8 kilometers from Tokyo Station.

The station is also used by rolling stock delivered from the J-TREC factory in Kanazawa-ku, Yokohama via a JR Freight connecting line immediately south of the station.[1]

Station layout[edit]

Zushi Station has an island platform and a side platform serving three tracks. Platform 1 is used for trains which originate or terminate at Zushi. The platforms are connected by two overpasses. The station has entrances on the north and south sides, designated "west" and "east" respectively. In August 2007, escalator and elevator facilities were completed and a new overpass was opened on the eastern (Higashi-Zushi) side. The west exit was moved somewhat to the west.

There is a Midori no Madoguchi staffed ticket office, automatic ticket vending machines, reserved ticket vending machines, automatic ticket gates, and automatic fare adjustment machines. Also, in the station, outside the ticket gates, there is a Newdays convenience store and a kōban (police box).
