Station history[edit]

Nishi-Kozakai Station began operations on June 10, 1945 as Nishi-Ina Signal (西伊奈信号場 Nishi-Ina-shingō-shō?) on the Tōkaidō Main Line. It was elevated to a full station under its present name on August 1, 1948. Regularly scheduled freight services were discontinued in 1972, and parcel services by 1984. With the dissolution and privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of the Central Japan Railway Company. Automated turnstiles using the TOICA IC Card system came into operation from November 25, 2006.
