Higashi-Aoyama Station opened on December 20, 1930 as a station on the Sangu Kyuko Electric Railway. After merging with Osaka Electric Kido on March 15, 1941, the line became the Kansai Kyuko Railway's Osaka Line.[2] This line was merged with the Nankai Electric Railway on June 1, 1944 to form Kintetsu.[2] On October 25, 1971, due to failure of an ATS system in Aoyama Tunnel, a runaway limited express train derailed in Sodani Tunnel near this station and collided head on with another one, with 25 fatalities (article in Japanese). On November 25, 1975, after a landslide obliterated part of the tracks between this station and Sakakibara-Onsenguchi Station, the tracks were rerouted slightly, a new tunnel was constructed, and a new station building was built. On February 27, 2009 a derailment of a local train occurred at this station, but without fatalities.
