Station history

Torii Station was established on February 1, 1923 as a station on the now-defunct Hōraiji Railway (鳳来寺鉄道, Hōraiji Tetsudō). The station was named Torii because it is adjacent to the reported deathplace of Torii Suneemon, a samurai famed for his bravery and death by execution during the siege of Nagashino Castle (Battle of Nagashino) in 1575. [1] The ruin of Nagashino Castle is adjacent to the neighboring Nagashinojō Station.

On August 1, 1943, the Hōraiji Railway was nationalized along with some other local lines to form the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) Iida Line and the station was renamed to its present name. [2] Scheduled freight operations were discontinued in 1962. The station has been unattended since 1971. 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. A new station building was completed in 1996.
