Ise-Nakagawa Station (伊勢中川駅 Ise-Nakagawa-eki?) is a major junction railway station operated by the private railway operator Kintetsu in Matsusaka, Mie Prefecture. The station is served by the Yamada Line, and is a Terminus for the Osaka Line.[1]

The station has a stationmaster and is responsible for the administration of the sections between Higashi-Aoyama Station and this station on the Osaka Line and between this station and Higashi-Matsusaka Station on the Yamada Line.


Station layout[edit]

Ise-Nakagawa Station has six parallel tracks numbered 1 through 6. Four island platforms are located to serve Tracks 1 & 2, 2 & 3, 3 & 4, and 4 & 5. Track 6 is served by one side platform. This layout enables trains on Tracks 2, 3, 4 and 5 to open doors on the both sides of the trains for easy transfer among the three connecting major lines at this station.

Limited express trains running directly between the Osaka Line and the Nagoya Line do not pass through the station. Instead, these trains use a crossover between the two lines located north of the station. The two trunk lines and this crossover constitutes a triangle.

Ise-Nakagawa Station opened on May 18, 1930 as Sankyū-Nakagawa Station (参急中川駅 Sankyū-Nakagawa-eki?) on the Sangu Express Electric Railway. On March 15, 1941, the Sangu Express Electric Railway merged with Osaka Electric Railway to become a station on Kansai Express Railway's Yamada Line, at which time the station was renamed it its present name.[4] This line in turn was merged with the Nankai Electric Railway on June 1, 1944, to form Kintetsu.[4] A new station building was completed in 2004.
