Kyōwa Station (共和駅, Kyōwa-eki) operated by the Central Japan Railway Company in Ōbu, Aichi Prefecture, Japan. The station is 349.5 rail kilometers from the terminus of the Tōkaidō Main Line at Tokyo Station.


Kyōwa Station was opened on December 7, 1933 as a passenger station on the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) Tōkaidō Main Line. The station was closed on November 1, 1940 and reopened on July 11, 1945 but only for seasonal operations. The JGR became the Japan National Railway (JNR) after World War II. Full passenger operations did not resume until September 1, 1951. Small parcel operations were discontinued from November 1971. With the privatization and dissolution of the JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of the Central Japan Railway Company. Automatic turnstiles were installed in May 1992, and the TOICA system of magnetic fare cards was implemented in October 2007.



Kyōwa Station has one side platform and one island platform.
