HistoryEdit

 
Mishima Station shortly after completion in 1934

The original Mishima Station was opened on June 15, 1896 in the town of Nagaizumi. However, with the completion of the Tanna Tunnel between Atami and Numazu, this station was renamed Shimo-Togari Station, and a new Mishima Station was opened at its present location on December 1, 1934. The terminus of the Izuhakone Railway was also relocated to Mishima Station at this time. On April 25, 1969, Tōkaidō Shinkansen services began serving Mishima Station. Regularly scheduled freight service was discontinued in 1974, however, private freight services to the Toray Industries Mishima plant continued on a spur line until 2007. In 2008, Mishima Station was extensively remodeled, and an ASTY shopping complex was opened at the station.

Passenger statisticsEdit

In fiscal 2017, the JR portion of the station was used by an average of 30,859 passengers daily (boarding passengers only) and the Izuhakone portion of the station was used by 8,599 passengers daily (boarding passengers only).[1]

AccidentsEdit

On December 27, 1995, the first and so far only fatality caused by the Tōkaidō Shinkansen occurred at Mishima Station when Yusuke Kawarazaki, a 17-year-old high school student, got caught in a car door, and was dragged down the platform by the leaving train.
