The station in JR East days, November 2013
Arai Station opened on 15 August 1886.
With the [1 ] privatization of Japanese National Railways (JNR) on 1 April 1987, the station came under the control of JR East. [1 ]
From 14 March 2015, with the opening of the
Hokuriku Shinkansen extension from Nagano to Kanazawa, local passenger operations over sections of the Shinetsu Main Line and Hokuriku Main Line running roughly parallel to the new shinkansen line were reassigned to third-sector railway operating companies. From this date, Arai Station was transferred to the ownership of the third-sector operating company Echigo Tokimeki Railway. [2 ]
