History[edit]

Ōiso Station opened on July 11, 1887 on the Tokaido Main Line of the Japanese Government Railways (JGR). With the dissolution and privatization of the Japanese National Railways (successor of JGR) on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of JR East. Automated turnstiles using the Suica IC Card system came into operation from November 18, 2001.[citation needed]
