History[edit]

Noborito Station opened as a station on the Nambu Railway on March 9, 1927. The adjacent Odawara Line station opened on April 1, 1927 as Inada-Tamagawa Station (稲田多摩川駅 Inada-Tamagawa-eki?). The Nambu Railway was nationalized on April 1, 1944 becoming part of the Japanese Government Railway (JGR) system, which became the Japan National Railways (JNR) from 1949. The adjacent Odawara Line station was renamed Noborito-Tamagawa Station (登戸多摩川駅 Noborito-Tamagawa-eki?) on April 1, 1955, and the name shortened to its present name on April 1, 1958. Freight services were discontinued on the Nambu Line from April 1, 1972. Along with privatization and division of JNR, JR East started operating the Nambu Line station on April 1, 1987. The station building and platforms were extensively remodelled from 2003-2007.
