Its name was changed to Hashido, Kurehashi, Niikura District, Saitama (埼玉県新座郡榑橋村大字橋戸?, Saitama-ken Niikura-gun Kurehashi-mura ōaza Hashido) in 1889, Hashido, Ōizumi, Kitatoshima District, Tokyo (東京府北豊島郡大泉村大字橋戸?, Tokyo-fu Kitatoshima-gun Ōizumi-mura ōaza Hashido) in 1891, Kitaōizumimachi, Itabashi, Tokyo City, Tokyo (東京府東京市板橋区北大泉町?, Tokyo-fu Tokyo-shi Itabashi-ku Kitaōizumimachi) in 1932, and Kitaōizumimachi, Nerima, Tokyo (東京都練馬区北大泉町?, Tokyo-to Nerima-ku Kitaōizumimachi) in 1947.
