Ōmi Station (大海駅?, Ōmi-eki) is a railway station on the Iida Line in Shinshiro, Aichi Prefecture, Japan. It is located 27.9 rail kilometers from the southern terminus of the Iida Line at Toyohashi Station.

Station history[edit]

Ōmi Station was established on September 23, 1900, as a station on the now-defunct Toyokawa Railway (豊川鉄道?, Toyokawa Tetsudō). The station was renamed Nagashino Station (長篠駅?, Nagashino-eki) on March 15, 1903. On February 1, 1923, the Hōraiji Railway connected to this station. On August 1, 1943, the Hōraiji Railway and the Toyokawa Railway were nationalized along with some other local lines to form the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) Iida Line, and the station was renamed to its present name.[1] The present station building was completed in August 1969. Scheduled freight operations were discontinued in 1984. The station has been unattended since April 1985. Along with its division and privatization of JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control and operation of the Central Japan Railway Company.
