History[edit]

The first station known as Itayado opened in 1910 as a surface station on the Sanyo Electric Railway. In 1977, the first stretch of the Seishin-Yamate Line opened.

The station was affected by the 1995 Kobe earthquake on January 17, 1995. While the Seishin-Yamate Line resumed limited service the following day, the Sanyo Electric Railway station was heavily damaged in the earthquake and consequently had to be relocated underground. Service was suspended on the railway until the new underground station opened in March of that year.
