Mikawa-Tōgō Station (三河東郷駅?, Mikawa-Tōgō-eki) is a railway station on the Iida Line in Shinshiro, Aichi Prefecture, Japan. It is located 25.0 rail kilometers from the southern terminus of the Iida Line at Toyohashi Station.

Station History[edit]

Mikawa-Tōgō Station was established on September 23, 1900 as Kawaji Station (川路駅?, Kawaji-eki) on the now-defunct Toyokawa Railway (豊川鉄道?, Toyokawa Tetsudō). On August 1, 1943, the Toyokawa Railway was nationalized along with some other local lines to form the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) Iida Line, and the station was renamed to its present name.[1] Scheduled freight operations were discontinued in 1962 and small parcel operations from 1971. The station has been unattended since 1984. 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.

Layout[edit]
