Shindō Station (新堂駅, Shindō-eki) is a train station of West Japan Railway Company (JR-West) in Iga, Mie, Japan. It is located 86.1 rail kilometres from the terminus of the Kansai Main Line at Nagoya Station and 26.2 rail kilometers from Kameyama Station.

History[edit]

Shindō Station was opened on July 15, 1921 as a station on the Imperial Government Railways (IGR), which became Japan National Railways (JNR) after World War II. Freight operations were discontinued from August 1, 1970. With the privatization of JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of JR-West. In July 2002, the station was extensively remodeled, with the original side platform and island platform replaced by a single island platform and with the station building rebuilt.

Surroundings[edit]

  • Moku Moku Farm

Despite the fact that Shindō Station is the closest station to the Moku Moku Farm in Iga, it is not walkable distance, and a taxi ride is needed. However, the station does not always have taxis and so the official directions recommend catching a taxi at either Tsuge Station (柘植駅) (a 15-minute taxi ride) or Iga-Ueno Station (伊賀上野駅) (a 25-minute taxi ride).
