Aichi-Mito Station (愛知御津駅 Aichi-Mito-eki?) is a railway station on the Tōkaidō Main Line of Central Japan Railway Company in Toyokawa, Aichi Prefecture, Japan. The station is 302.1 rail kilometers from Tokyo Station.

Station history[edit]

Aichi-Mito Station first opened on September 1, 1888, as Goyu Station (御油駅 Goyu-eki?) when the section of the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) line connecting Hamamatsu with Ōbu was completed. From April 1, 1895 this became the Tōkaidō Main Line. The station was burned down during the Toyokawa Air Raid of 1945, and a new station building was completed in April 1948. The JGR became the JNR after World War II and on August 1, 1948, the station name was changed to its present name. Regularly scheduled freight services were discontinued in 1971, and parcel services by 1984. With the dissolution and privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of the Central Japan Railway Company. Automated turnstiles using the TOICA IC Card system came into operation from November 18, 2001.
