Kasadera Station (笠寺駅 Kasadera-eki?) on the Tōkaidō Main Line of Central Japan Railway Company (JR Central) located in Midori-ku, Nagoya, Japan. [2] It is located 356.8 rail kilometers from Tokyo Station. It is also a terminal station for the freight-only Nagoya Rinkai Railway.

History[edit]

Kasadera Station was established on April 10, 1942 as a signal stop on the Japanese Government Railways (JGR), primarily to serve a large military ordnance factory active during World War II. It was elevated to full station status on June 1, 1943. The station was destroyed during the Nagoya Air Raid of May 17, 1945 and was rebuilt in February 1949. The JGR became the JNR after the end of the war. A new station was built in May 1964. The Nagoya Rinkai Railway began operations in August 1965, and all freight operations were transferred to this company after May 1981. With the privatization and dissolution of the JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of the Central Japan Railway Company. A new station building was completed in April 1988.
