Tomida Station (富田駅, Tomida-eki) is a railway station in Yokkaichi, Mie Prefecture, Japan, on the Kansai Main Line. It is located 33.0 rail kilometers from Nagoya Station, and is operated by Central Japan Railway Company (JR Central).

Station history[edit]

Tomida Station was opened on July 5, 1894 as a station on the Kansai Railway. The Kansai Railway was nationalized on October 1, 1907 becoming part of the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) and the Sangi Railway Line connected to this station on July 23, 1931. The JGR became the Japan National Railways (JNR) after World War II. Freight car operations on the JNR were discontinued November 15, 1982. The station was absorbed into the JR Central network upon the privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987.



Tomida Station has one side platform and one island platform serving three tracks, connected by an overpass. Another island platform exists for tracks 4 and 5, but is not in use, and is currently serving as a siding for freight cars. The station is unattended.
