Kagoshima Station

Kagoshima Station(Kagoshima Eki) isKagoshimaKagoshimaHamachoIt is in,Kyushu passenger railway(JR Kyushu) ・Kagoshima City Transportation Bureau Ofstation.Office codeIs ▲940126[1].

In this section, it is in front of the stationKagoshima Tram OfKagoshima station square stopIs also described here.


In Kagoshima City, which is the prefectural capital of Kagoshima Prefecture, we call ourselves "Kagoshima", and in JR KyushuKagoshima Main Line,Nippo Main LineIs the official end point of.However, in terms of train operation, it is one station next to the Kagoshima Main Line side.Kagoshima Chuo StationHowever, it functions as the de facto end point of both lines, and the status of this station is relatively low since the time when Kagoshima Chuo Station called itself Nishi Kagoshima Station.

largeTimetableThe treatment in the opening route map ofKotsu ShimbunIn the "JR timetable" issued byPrefectural office locationThe ◎ mark indicating the representative station is located at both Kagoshima Station and Kagoshima Chuo Station.[Annotation 1] On the other hand, the current "JTBIn "Timetable", the "double square" mark indicating the representative station where the prefecture is located is written only at Kagoshima Chuo Station.[Annotation 2].  

Boarding line

Kagoshima Station

There are two lines, Kagoshima Main Line and Nippou Main Line, both of which end at this station.For this reason, there are only up trains departing from this station.Kagoshima Main Line and Nippou Main Line on the premisesKm postBoth exist[Annotation 3].Operating kiloAbove is adjacent to the south side of the stationJapan Freight Railway(JR Freight)Kagoshima Freight Terminal StationIs at the same point as.In addition, at this stationAffiliation lineIs the Kagoshima Main Line[2].

As mentioned above, the Kagoshima Main Line and Nippou Main Line end at Kagoshima Chuo Station, and many Kagoshima Main Line trains return at Kagoshima Chuo Station, so few trains can reach this station. Since all trains on the Nippou Line run to Kagoshima Chuo Station, this station has a stronger meaning as an intermediate station on the Nippou Line.Therefore, there are several regular trains heading to Kagoshima Chuo Station from noon to evening, which are separated by more than an hour even though they connect the city areas.In addition, starting from Kagoshima Chuo StationIbusuki Makurazaki LineSome trains run to this station.

Kagoshima station square stop

First lineAlthough it is the end point of, in terms of operation, it goes directly to other routes,1 systems-2 systemsIt is the starting point for each.


The train to KagoshimaYatsushiroRoutes via the coastline and via the mountains were considered, and the route via the mountains was built first because of the military's claim that the coastal railroad was vulnerable to enemy attacks during the war.From thisHumanity-YoshimatsuViaHisatsu LineA railway to Kagoshima will be constructed by the route of Kagoshima-Kokubu (later renamed) as the construction section from the Kagoshima side.Hayato StationIt was opened on June 1901, 34 (Meiji 6).It was installed in the northernmost part of the city of Kagoshima.After that, on November 10, 1909 (Meiji 42)Yadake Daiichi TunnelKagoshima was connected to the national railway network by completing the section that crossed.

However, after that, the construction of a railway via the coastline was also advanced, and it was extended further from Kagoshima Station, which was the terminal station, and Take Station (later passed through Nishi Kagoshima Station and became the current Kagoshima Chuo Station) became 1913 ( It opened on October 2th (Taisho 10).When the railway via the coastline was completed, this became the Kagoshima Main Line, and the conventional line via Hitoyoshi / Yoshimatsu became the Hisatsu Line.

Second World WarLater, as the urban development of Kagoshima City progressed, it gradually developed to the south side, and the status of Kagoshima Station declined relatively and Nishi Kagoshima Station began to develop.The Kagoshima Motive Power Depot, which was the driving base, was set up beside Kagoshima Station, but other transportation-related organizations such as the Kagoshima Factory (later Kagoshima Vehicle Station) and Kagoshima Driver's Station were built near Nishi Kagoshima Station. ..The proposal to relocate the position as the central station of Kagoshima to Nishi Kagoshima Station received strong opposition from the locals, and although this station continues to call itself Kagoshima, the station for long-distance trains is 1971 (Showa 46). Moved to Nishi-Kagoshima Station (Section shortened for trains via Kagoshima Main Line, extension for trains via Nitoyo Main Line), and Nishi-Kagoshima Station was renamed to Kagoshima Chuo Station when the Kyushu Shinkansen opened in 2004. After becoming the terminal station of the Shinkansen, Kagoshima Chuo Station has become the central station of Kagoshima City in both name and reality.

The 1976th generation station building, which has been used since 51 (Showa 4), was closed on October 2018, 30 (Heisei 10).[3]..The next day, the 20th, we started business at the temporary station building.[3].. The new station building was scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2019, but the completion was delayed due to the delay in procurement of materials, and it started to be used on February 2020, 2 (Reiwa 2).[4][5].
