Mikawa-Ichinomiya Station (三河一宮駅 Mikawa-Ichinomiya-eki) is a railway station on the Iida Line in Toyokawa, Aichi Prefecture, Japan. It is located 12.0 rail kilometers from the southern terminus of the Iida Line at Toyohashi Station.
Mikawa-Ichinomiya Station was established on July 22, 1897 as Ichinomiya Station (一の宮駅 Ichinomiya-eki)on the now-defunct Toyokawa Railway (豊川鉄道 Toyokawa Tetsudō). The station was renamed to its present name on January 1, 1916. On August 1, 1943, the Toyokawa Railway was nationalized along with some other local lines to form the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) Iida Line. Scheduled freight operations were discontinued in 1971. 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. A new station building was completed in December 1990.
Mikawa-Ichinomiya Station has two opposed side platforms connected by an overpass crossing. The station building is designed to resemble a shrine or temple building, as the station is the closest railway station to the ichinomiya of former Mikawa Province, the Toga Jinja
