story

Gifu Station is a railway station in the heart of Gifu, Gifu Prefecture, Japan, operated by Central Japan Railway Company (JR Central) and is located. Along with Meitetsu Gifu Station, it is one of the two main rail stations in Gifu City.HistoryThe station first opened on January 21, 1887, when it was called and was primarily used for the transport of goods. On December 15, 1888, it became a passenger rail station, at which point its name was changed to Gifu Station. On July 22, 1913, the former Aichi Station building, which closed in 1909, was moved to the area that is now the south side of Gifu Station. This station was used until it was burned to the ground during the firebombings of Gifu City in 1945. On November 1, 1986, construction of the elevated rail lines began, with construction ending on March 2, 1996.Currently, the north side of the station is undergoing extensive redevelopment. This redevelopment includes new bus boarding platforms, a new taxi boarding area, area beautification, walkways leading directly to the second floor of the station, and many other features. Construction is expected to be completed in August 2008.Bus boarding platformsOn the north side of JR Gifu Station, there are bus boarding platforms for all of the bus lines belonging to Gifu Bus, Co., Ltd. There are 15 bus boarding platforms in all, with 12 serving bus lines to different parts of Gifu and its surrounding municipalities. The first two platforms are only for alighting and the last one is currently not being used.
