    Eiwa Station has two opposed side platforms, with platform 1 adjacent to the station building. The platforms are connected by an uncovered overpass. Three rail lines pass between the platforms, with the middle, non-electrified line used for freight traffic.

    History

    The Danta Signal Stop (善太信号場, Danta-shingojo) was established on the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) Kansai Line on June 1, 1927. This was elevated to become Eiwa Station on February 1, 1929. The JGR became the JNR(Japan National Railways) after World War II. Freight operations were discontinued from October 15, 1950. With the privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of JR Central. Automatic ticket gates using the TOICA smart card were installed from November 25, 2006.
