The station opened on November 12, 1970, as a freight terminal named Kita-Kashima Station (北鹿島駅 Kita-Kashima eki?). It formed the boundary between Japanese National Railways (Kashima Line) and Kashima Rinkai Railway (Kashima Rinkō Line).
Although the Kashima Rinkō Line provided passenger services between July 25, 1978, and December 1, 1983, and the Ōarai Kashima Line opened on March 14, 1985, for both freight and passenger traffic, Kita-Kashima Station was not used by passenger services. The station was absorbed into the JR East network upon the privatization of the Japanese National Railways (JNR) on 1 April 1987.
