Smells like Showa!
In 1928 (Showa 3), in commemoration of the emperor’s ascension to the throne, the village was named “Showa.” For this reason, when the train station was opened, the region’s name, “Showa,” was adopted as the station name. However, in order to avoid confusion with the Showa Station on the Kanagawa-Tsurumi Line, “Tosa” was added. At one time, there was a sign in front of the station set up on National Route 381 that said, “Japanese National Railways Tosa Showa Station,” making it a hidden place of interest, but it has now been removed due to wear and tear.
