Shima-Yokoyama Station (志摩横山駅, Shima-Yokoyama-eki) is a railway station in Shima, Mie Prefecture, operated by Kintetsu Railway. The station is 61.9 rail kilometers from the terminus of the line at Ise-Nakagawa Station.

History[edit]

Shima-Yokoyama Station opened on July 23, 1929 as Ugataguchi Station (鵜方口駅, Ugataguchi-eki) on the Shima Electric Railway. The line was one of six private companies consolidated into Mie Kotsu by order of the Japanese government on February 11, 1944. The station was renamed to its present name in December 1946. When Mie Kotsu dissolved on February 1, 1964, the station became part of the Mie Electric Railway, which was then acquired by Kintetsu on April 1, 1965.
