History[edit]

The station opened on October 21, 1895 as Ōwani Station (大鰐駅) on the Japanese government railways, the predecessor to the Japanese National Railways (JNR).[1] A footbridge connecting the platforms was completed in 1915, and the station building in 1921.[citation needed]

With the privatization of JNR on April 1, 1987, it came under the operational control of JR East.[1] On March 16, 1991, it was renamed Ōwani-Onsen Station.[1]

The Kōnan Railway Ōwani Station opened on January 26, 1952. On October 1, 1970 it was renamed Kōnan-Ōwani Station (大鰐駅) to distinguish it from the adjacent JNR station; however, it reverted to its original name on April 1, 1986.[citation needed]

Passenger statistics[edit]

In fiscal 2016, the JR East station was used by an average of 212 passengers daily (boarding passengers only).[2]
