History[edit]

Kanei Station was established on May 24, 1895, as a station on the Kansai Railway. The Kansai Railway was nationalized on October 1, 1907, becoming part of the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) system. The JGR became the JNR (Japan National Railways) after World War II. With the privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of JR Central.
