Kowa Station is the last stop on the Meitetsu Kowa Line near the southern tip of the Chita Peninsula, south of Nagoya. The other terminus station of the Kowa Line is Otagawa from where trains continue to Jingu-mae, Kanayama and Nagoya stations.
Kowa is your jumping off point if you wish to visit the islands of Himakajima and Shinojima. Either take the free shuttle bus the short distance to Kowa Port for ferry boats to both these islands or take a Meitetsu bus (300 yen) about 20 minutes to the very bottom of the peninsula to Morozaki for cheaper crossings to both Himakajima and Shinojima.
Right next door to the station is a Meitetsu owned Pare Marche supermarket. Meitetsu taxis await customers at the station's taxi rank.
On weekdays the first trains running north up to Nagoya are at 5.30am (local) and 5.45am (Express). The last express is at 21.57pm to Kanayama with a local to Fuki at 22.50pm being the last train of a weekday.
On weekends and public holidays the first train out of Kowa Station is a local for Inuyama at 5.39am. The last express is at 22.00pm to Kanayama with a local to Fuki at 22.53pm being the last train of a weekend or holiday.
