A handy place for a U-turn!?
The name of the Iejigawa region originally came from the image of houses built on a land surrounded by precipitous mountains and the nearby Shimanto River tributary called the Ieji River (ie means “houses,” ji means “land,” and gawa means “river”). In March 1974 (Showa 49), Iejigawa was adopted as the station name. Because the Kawaoku Block Station is waiting when you head towards Kubokawa and there are often many trains heading in and out and switching places, there are many passengers from Uwajima who simply make a U-turn at this station.
