Station history

Ejima Station began operations on November 10, 1926 as the Ejima Signal Stop (江島渡停留場) on the now-defunct Toyokawa Railway (豊川鉄道, Toyokawa Tetsudō). On August 1, 1943, the Toyokawa Railway was nationalized along with some other local lines to form the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) Iida Line, and Ejima was raised in status to a full station.[1] Along with its division and privatization of JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control and operation of the Central Japan Railway Company (JR Tōkai).

Passenger statistics

In fiscal 2017, the station was used by an average of 66 passengers daily.[2]
