Tōjō Station (Hiroshima)
Tōjō Station (東城駅 Tōjō-eki?) is a JR West Geibi Line station located in Kawatō, Tōjō-chō, Shōbara, Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan. Because of the travelling of passengers across prefectural lines between Okayama and Hiroshima Prefectures, several local trains go between Tōjō and Niimi. The name "Tōjō" means "east castle," and comes from being the eastern castle of the local daimyō. The western castle was located about 38 miles away at Saijō, though neither castle is in existence anymore.
