Scheduled freight services were discontinued from March 1985. With the dissolution and privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the joint control of the East Japan Railway Company and the Japan Freight Railway Company. The station was named to its present name on April 1, 1993. Freight operations were discontinued from July 16, 1999.
