Tōjō Station (東上駅, Tōjō-eki) is a railway station on the Iida Line in Toyokawa, Aichi Prefecture, Japan. It is located 17.0 rail kilometers from the southern terminus of the Iida Line at Toyohashi Station.

Station History[edit]

Tōjō Station was established on April 25, 1898 as a station on the now-defunct Toyokawa Railway (豊川鉄道, Toyokawa Tetsudō). On August 1, 1943, the Toyokawa Railway was nationalized, along with some other local lines to form the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) Iida Line.[1] Scheduled freight operations were discontinued in 1963. The station has been unattended since February 1984. 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. A new station building was completed in January 2007.



Tōjō Station has two opposed side platforms connected by a level crossing.
