Shimoji Station (下地駅 Shimoji-eki?) is a railway station on the Iida Line in Toyohashi, Aichi Prefecture, Japan. It is located 2.2 rail kilometers from the southern terminus of the Iida Line at Toyohashi Station.

Station History[edit]

Shimoji Station was established on December 23, 1925 as a temporary stop on the now-defunct Toyokawa Railway (豊川鉄道 Toyokawa Tetsudō?) connecting Toyohashi with Toyokawa. [1] 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 Shimoji became a full station at that time.[2] The current station building was constructed in 1974. The station has been unattended since April 1985. 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.



Shimoji Station has two side platforms built on an embankment, connected by an underpass crossing. The area in between the side platforms is filled in, forming what is effectively an island platform.
