waiting/sleeping at station??

Waiting/sleeping at station??

I want to take the last train from [Shin-Imamiya station] to [Fuji station-Shizuoka] which will arrive at 10:59.
The train will stop at [Maihara station] at 01:06, and wait for the next train in the morning 06:07.

At that time, can I wait/stay at the platform?? So I can take the morning train.
Or I have to leave the station and coming back in the morning??

P.S. I will use the JR pass.


Hi there,

The station will most likely close during the night and you will have to leave the platform for security reasons. My advise would be to find an internet cafe or family restaurant near the station and stay the night there.

Hope this helps and good luck!
