Shibata Station (柴田駅, Shibata-eki) is a railway station operated by Meitetsu's Tokoname Line located in Minami Ward, Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture, Japan. It is located 6.1 rail kilometers from the terminus of the line at Jingū-mae Station.[1]

History[edit]

Shibata Station was opened on February 18, 1912 as Hoshizaki Station (星崎駅, Hoshizaki-eki) on the Aichi Electric Railway Company. The station was renamed to its present name in 1917. The Aichi Electric Railway became part of the Meitetsu group on August 1, 1935. Express train service was discontinued from 1990. From 2004–2006, the tracks were elevated. On July 1, 2006, the Tranpass system of magnetic fare cards with automatic turnstiles was implemented, and the station has been unattended since that point.
