Station history[edit]

Taketoyo Station was opened on March 1, 1886 as a passenger and freight station on the Japanese Government Railways (JGR), but was relocated to its present location in June 1892. Freight operations were relocated to Taketoyo-Minato station from April 1, 1930, but that station was closed in August 1965. The JGR became the Japan National Railway (JNR) after World War II. Freight operations were discontinued from November 15, 1975. With the privatization and dissolution of the JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of the Central Japan Railway Company. Automatic turnstiles were installed in May 1992, and the TOICA system of magnetic fare cards was implemented in November 2006.

Passenger statistics[edit]

In fiscal 2018, the station was used by an average of 677 passengers daily (boarding passengers only).[1]
