Station history

Toyokawa Station was opened on July 15, 1897; 124 years ago (1897-07-15) as a terminal station on the now-defunct Toyokawa Railway (豊川鉄道, Toyokawa Tetsudō). At the time, the line consisted of Toyohashi Station, Ushikubo Station, and this station, in that order, but the line was soon extended on to Mikawa-Ichinomiya later that year.[1] In December 1931 a modern, 3-story concrete station building was completed. A spur line, the Nishi-Toyokawa Line, connected to the station on May 12, 1942. On August 1, 1943, the Toyokawa Railway was nationalized along with some other local lines to form the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) Iida Line.[2] The Nishi-Toyokawa Line ceased operation in 1956. Scheduled freight operations were discontinued in 1984. 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 3296 passengers daily.[3]
