Okkawa Station (乙川駅 Okkawa-eki ) is a train station operated by the Central Japan Railway Company in Handa, Aichi Prefecture, Japan. The station is 12.8 rail kilometers from the terminus of the Taketoyo Line at Ōbu Station.
Okkawa Station was opened on December 7, 1933 as a passenger station on the Japanese Government Railways (JGR). Freight operations commenced from April 1, 1944. The JGR became the Japan National Railway (JNR) after World War II. Freight operations were discontinued from November 15, 1975 and small parcel operations from February 1, 1984. With the privatization and dissolution of the JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of the Central Japan Railway Company. The station has been unattended since March 1989. The station building was rebuilt in March 2006. Automatic turnstiles were installed in May 1992, and the TOICA system of magnetic fare cards was implemented in November 2006.
