The station opened on September 29, 1915 when Shinano Railway extended the operation from Ariake Station to Ikeda-Matsukawa Station (present-day Shinano-Matsukawa Station). Shinano Railway was integrated into the Japanese Government Railways on June 1, 1937. With the privatization of Japanese National Railways (JNR) on April 1, 1987 the station came under the control of JR East.
