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. This line was merged with the Nankai Electric Railway on June 1, 1944 to form Kintetsu. 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.
