Towadashi Station (十和田市駅, Towadashi-eki) was a terminal railway station on the Towada Kankō Electric Railway Line located in the city of Towada, Aomori Prefecture, Japan. It was 13.7 rail kilometers from the opposite terminus of the Towada Kankō Electric Railway Line at Misawa Station.

History[edit]

Towadashi Station was opened on September 5, 1922 as the Sanbongi Station (三本木駅). It was renamed to its present name on May 15, 1969. The station was completely rebuilt on October 28, 1985 with the new station incorporating the headquarters of the Towada Kankō Electric Railway, and the former station used for freight operations only. However, the line discontinued its freight operations in 1986 and the old station was demolished in 2005. In March 2007, a new terminal building, including a bank, post office, real estate office and supermarket was inaugurated.

The station was closed when the Towada Kankō Electric Railway Line was discontinued on April 1, 2012.
