History[edit]

Toba Station in 1911

Toba Station opened on July 21, 1911[1] as a station on the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) Sangū Line. The Shima Electric Railway connected to the station on July 23, 1929.[2] JGR became the Japanese National Railways (JNR) after World War II. Through a series of mergers, the Shima Electric Railway became the part of the Kintetsu Group by April 1, 1965.[3] The Kintetsu portion of the station was rebuilt in March 1970. The JNR portion of the station burned down in a fire on January 6, 1974 and rebuilt by October 14, 1975.[4] The Kintetsu portion of the station was rebuilt again in July 23, 1999.[5]
