Train Station Introductions

Ekawasaki

This station used to be the final stop

Until the opening of the entire line in March of 1974 (Showa 49), Ekawasaki Station was the final stop on the line formerly known as the Uwajima Line heading from Uwajima. Besides having an island platform with two tracks, there are old remains of a previously used storage track that stretch across the premises. Because local trains use this station to wait a few minutes to adjust their time schedule and for the trolley train to make long stops, this station can be used as an ideal rest stop and place to have a commemorative photo opportunity. Incidentally, the place where Japan’s hottest temperature of 41℃ was recorded on August 12, 2012, the Ekawasaki Local Metrological Station, is located about 1.8km or 25 minutes away from the station on foot, next to the middle school. Also, if you walk for about ten minutes, there is diorama of the Yodo Line approximately 270x180cm in size on display at the rest stop called “Yotte Nishi Tosa.”
