Asakura Station (朝倉駅 Asakura-eki?) is a railway station operated by Meitetsu's Tokoname Line located in Chita, Aichi Prefecture, Japan. It is located 16.4 rail kilometers from the terminus of the line at Jingū-mae Station. [1]

History[edit]

Asakura Station was opened on May 9, 1923 as a station on the Aichi Electric Railway Company. The Aichi Electric Railway became part of the Meitetsu group on August 1, 1935. The station building was reconstructed in March 1982, when the tracks were elevated. The station has been unattended since December 2004. In January 2005, the Tranpass system of magnetic fare cards with automatic turnstiles was implemented, and the station has been unattended since that point. [3]
