Shin-Koiwa Station opened on 10 July 1928.
JR East is considering installing platform-edge doors due to the large number of passenger accidents and suicides occurring at this station. Between July 2011 and June 2013, 13 incidents occurred in which passengers were hit by trains at this station. Katsushika Ward made an official request to JR East to install platform-edge doors at the station in July 2012.
On 27 June 2013, at around 14:40, a man in his thirties jumped in front of a 12-car Narita Express Yokohama to Narita Airport service passing non-stop through the station. The man died and his body hit a woman standing on the platform, injuring her.
