Minobu Station

Minobu Station (身延駅 Minobu-eki?) is a railway station on the Minobu Line of Central Japan Railway Company (JR Central) located in the town of Minobu, Minamikoma District, Yamanashi Prefecture, Japan. The station is located 43.5 rail kilometers from the southern terminus of the Minobu Line at Fuji Station.


Minobu Station was opened on May 18, 1920 as the terminal station on the original Fuji-Minobu Line. The line was extended to Ichikawa-Damon Station in December 1927, and came under control of the Japanese Government Railways on May 1, 1941. The JGR became the JNR (Japan National Railway) after World War II. A new station building was completed in June 1980. Freight operations were discontinued from January 16, 1984. Along with the division and privatization of JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control and operation of the Central Japan Railway Company.
