Kanaya Station is served by the Tōkaidō Main Line, and is located 212.9 kilometers from the starting point of the line at Tokyo Station. It is also a terminus of the Ōigawa Railway’s Ōigawa Main Line and is 39.5 kilometers form the opposing terminus at Senzu Station.

Station layoutEdit

JR Kanaya Station has a two opposing side platforms serving Track 1 and Track 2 which are on headshunts, allowing for tracks for express trains to pass in between. The platforms are connected to the station building by an underpass. The station building has automated ticket machines, TOICA automated turnstiles and a staffed ticket office.

The adjacent Ōigawa Kanaya Station has a single side platform. The platform is equipped with Selective Door Operation, as trains longer than four cars in length are too long for the platform. The station originally was built with a terminal headshunt, which is no longer in existence.
