History[edit]

The private Hokkaido Railway opened Ginzan Station on 29 January 1905 as an added station on a track which had been established between Hakodate and Otaru. After the Hokkaido Railway was nationalized on 1 July 1907, Japanese Government Railways (JGR) took over control of the station. On 12 October 1909 the station became part of the Hakodate Main Line. On 1 April 1987, with the privatization of Japanese National Railways (JNR), the successor of JGR, the station came under the control of JR Hokkaido.[2][3] From 1 October 2007, station numbering was introduced on JR Hokkaido lines, with Ginzan Station becoming "S21".[4]
