Tsushima Station (津島駅?, Tsushima-eki) is a train station on the Meitetsu Tsushima Line and Bisai Line located in Tsushima, Aichi Prefecture, Japan. It is located 11.8 rail kilometers from the terminus of the Tsushima Line at Sukaguchi and 8.2 rail kilometers from the terminus of the Bisai Line at Yatomi.

History[edit]

Tsushima Station was opened on April 3, 1893, as a terminal station of the privately owned Bisai Railroad, on the same day as the opposing terminal, Yatomi Station, and Saya Station. Meitetsu bought the Bisai Railroad on August 1, 1925.[1] On October 25, 1932, former Shin-Tsushima Station on Meitetsu's Tsushima Line was rebuilt as part of Tsushima Station. The tracks were elevated and station rebuilt in 1968.
