Okaji Station (岡地駅, Okaji-eki) is a train station on the Tenryū Hamanako Line in Kita-ku, Hamamatsu, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. It is located 43.5 rail kilometers from the terminus of the line at Kakegawa Station.

Station history[edit]

The station, originally called Kigakōkōmae Station (気賀高校前駅, Kigakōkōmae-eki), was established on March 15, 1987, the date the former Futamata Line of the Japanese National Railways was succeeded by the Tenryū Hamanako Railroad as its Tenryū Hamanako Line. The station was used by students of nearby Kiga High School, from which the station took the name.[1]

Because the high school was to be closed, the station name was changed to the present one on March 14, 2015, concurrently with the opening of Morimachibyōinmae Station.[2]
