History[edit]

In 1913, the Miyazaki Prefectural Railway (宮崎県営鉄道) had opened a line from Miyazaki northwards to Hirose (now closed). After the Miyazaki Prefectural Railway was nationalized on 21 September 1917, Japanese Government Railways (JGR) undertook the subsequent extension of the track as part of the then Miyazaki Main Line, reaching Tomitaka (now Hyūgashi) by 11 October 1921. In the next phase of expansion, the track was extended to Minami-Nobeoka, which opened as the new northern terminus on 11 February 1922. Kadogawa was opened on the same day as an intermediate station on the new track. Expanding north in phases and joining up with other networks, the track eventually reached Kokura and the entire stretch from Kokura through Kadogawa to Miyakonojō was redesignated as the Nippō Main Line on 15 December 1923. With the privatization of Japanese National Railways (JNR), the successor of JGR, on 1 April 1987, Kadogawa came under the control of JR Kyushu.[5][6][7]

Passenger statistics[edit]

In fiscal 2016, the station was used by an average of 424 passengers daily (boarding passengers only), and it ranked 260th among the busiest stations of JR Kyushu.[8]
