HistoryEdit

The station first opened on June 15, 1898 as Mishima Station on the original route of the Tōkaidō Main Line under the Japanese Government Railways. It was renamed Shimo-Togari Station on October 1, 1934 shortly before the opening of the Tanna Tunnel created a more direct route from Atami to Numazu and led to the creation of a new Mishima Station further south. JGR became the Japanese National Railways (JNR) from 1946. Regularly scheduled freight operations were suspended from 1982. Along with privatization and division of JNR, JR Central started operating the station from April 1, 1987.

Passenger statisticsEdit

In fiscal 2017, the station was used by an average of 1354 passengers daily (boarding passengers only). [1]
