Station history

Funamachi Station was established on June 1, 1927 as Shin-Funamachi Temporary Stop (新船町停留場, Shin-Funamachi Teiryujo) on the now-defunct Toyokawa Railway (豊川鉄道, Toyokawa Tetsudō) connecting Toyohashi with Toyokawa.[1] 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 Funamachi became a full station at that time.[2] The station has been unattended since April 1985. 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.

Passenger statistics

In fiscal 2017, the station was used by an average of 225 passengers daily.[3]
