It is a terminus of the Shima Line and a common destination for Kintetsu limited express trains from Nagoya, Osaka and Kyoto. The station is 66.0 rail kilometers from the opposing terminus of the Yamada Line at Ise-Nakagawa Station.

History[edit]

The line was one of six private companies consolidated into Mie Kotsu by order of the Japanese government on February 11, 1944. When Mie Kotsu dissolved on February 1, 1964, the station became part of the Mie Electric Railway, which was then acquired by Kintetsu on April 1, 1965.
