Station History[edit]

Shin-Toyohashi Station was established by the privately held Atsumi Railroad on October 1, 1927. Previously, the terminal of the Atsumi Railroad was 200 meters further north at Hanada Station (花田駅 Hanada Station?). On September 1, 1940, the Atsumi Railway became part of the Nagoya Railway system, and was spun out again as the Toyohashi Railway on October 1, 1954. In 2008, the station was expanded, with its side platform changed to an island platform, and the station building replaced by an elevated three-story station building.
