Ōdaka Station (大高駅?, Ōdaka-eki) is a railway station on the Tōkaidō Main Line of Central Japan Railway Company (JR Central) located in Midori-ku, Nagoya, Japan. [2] It is located 353.6 rail kilometers from Tokyo Station.

History[edit]

Ōdaka Station was opened on March 1, 1868 with the completion of the Japanese Government Railway (JGR) line connecting Taketoyo Station and Atsuta Station. This line was named the Tōkaidō Line in 1895 and the Tōkaidō Main Line in 1909. A new station building was completed in March 1935. The JGR became the JNR after World War II. All freight operations were discontinued from August 1961. A new station building was completed in May 1962, but was relocated to its present location and rebuilt in 1978. With the privatization and dissolution of the JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of the Central Japan Railway Company.
