Mikawa-Kawai Station (三河川合駅 Mikawa-Kawai-eki?) is a railway station on the Iida Line in Shinshiro, Aichi Prefecture, Japan. It is located 45.2 rail kilometers from the southern terminus of the Iida Line at Toyohashi Station.

Station History[edit]

Mikawa-Kawai Station was established on February 1, 1923 as a station on the now-defunct Hōraiji Railway (鳳来寺鉄道 Hōraiji Tetsudō?). The Sanshin Railway began operations to this station from December 21, 1933. On August 1, 1943, both lines were nationalized along with some other local lines to form the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) Iida Line. All freight operations were discontinued by 1966 and small parcel operations by 1971. The station has been unattended since November 1, 1986. 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.



Mikawa-Kawai Station is an unattended station with a single island platform connected to the station building by a level crossing.
