History[edit]

Opened on May 21, 1978, the station was originally known as Narita Airport Station (成田空港駅 Narita Kuko-eki?). Passengers who took the Keisei Electric Railway to Narita Airport would disembark at the station and then either take a shuttle bus for an additional fare or walk to the terminal (present-day Terminal 1, which was the sole passenger terminal of the airport until 1992). A dedicated train station at Terminal 1 opened in 1991 with the name Narita Airport Station, and the former Narita Airport Station was then renamed Higashi-Narita Station. From October 2002, the Shibayama Railway Line began operations with Higashi-Narita Station as its terminus.
