Station history[edit]

Hatsukari Station was opened on July 9, 1908 as a signal stop on the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) Chūō Main Line. It was elevated to a full station for passenger and freight services on February 10, 1910. The JGR became the JNR (Japanese National Railways) after the end of World War II. The current station building was completed in October 1951. With the dissolution and privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of the East Japan Railway Company. Automated turnstiles using the Suica IC Card system came into operation from October 16, 2004.
