The station opened on May 21, 1964.
The station was constructed with the level of tracks which cross over the Osaka Loop Line to schedule to extend to Namba.
The station consists of two elevated side platforms serving a track each. When the station opened, Platform 1 was rarely used while Platform 2 was used for trains bound for Amagasaki. Between 1965 and 1974 when Nishi-Osaka limited express trains were operated, Platform 1 was used for these trains. Until the opening of the Hanshin Namba Line in 2009, the track (platform) was used as the arrival platform from January 23 until February 23.
