Toyooka Station (豊岡駅 Toyooka-eki?) is a train station on the Tenryū Hamanako Line in Iwata, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. It is located 23.0 rail kilometers from the terminus of the line at Kakegawa Station

Station history[edit]

Toyooka Station was established on June 1, 1940, when the section of the Japan National Railways Futamata Line was extended from Enshū-Mori Station to Kanasashi Station. Scheduled freight services were discontinued from February 1964. After the privatization of JNR on March 15, 1987, the station came under the control of the Tenryū Hamanako Line. The station was rebuilt in 2003 through the efforts of the local Chamber of Commerce, and an additional platform was added at that time.
