The station is served by the JR Shikoku Yosan Line and is located 213.9 km from the beginning of the line at Takamatsu.[3] Only Yosan Line local trains stop at the station and the eastbound trains stop at Matsuyama. Connections with other services are needed to travel further east of Matsuyama on the line.[4]
