History[edit]

  • The station opened to rail traffic on December 18, 1997, on the Osaka Port Transport System Techno Port Line.
  • On July 1, 2005, Osaka Municipal Transportation Bureau took over management of the station
  • A mini aquarium was installed on the subway platform at one time. Due to excessive maintenance costs and the relatively few users of the station, it was removed
  • A different train approach melody was used on the station, playing a sound similar to that of an ocean wave. On March 27, 2007, the melody was changed to the standard approach melody used on the Chuo Line.
