Ogawa Station (緒川駅?, Ogawa-eki) is a train station operated by the Central Japan Railway Company in Higashiura, Chita District, Aichi Prefecture, Japan. The station is 3.1 rail kilometers from the terminus of the Taketoyo Line at Ōbu Station.


Ogawa Station was opened on March 1, 1900 as a passenger station on the Japanese Government Railways (JGR). Freight operations commenced from April 1, 1903, and the station building was reconstructed at that time. The JGR became the Japan National Railway (JNR) after World War II. Freight operations were discontinued from November 15, 1975 and small parcel operations from February 1, 1984. 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 November 2006.



Ogawa Station has two elevated opposed side platforms, with the station building located underneath.
