History[edit]

The station opened as Katsunuma Station (勝沼駅 Katsunuma-eki?) on April 8, 1913 on the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) Chūō Main Line. The station had served as Ōhikage Signal Stop (大日影信号所 Ōhikage shingōsho?) for one week, from April 1, before it started the passenger and freight services. The JGR became the JNR (Japanese National Railways) after the end of World War II. A new two-story station building was completed in October 1980. With the dissolution and privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of the East Japan Railway Company. The station was named to its present name on April 1, 1993. Automated turnstiles using the Suica IC Card system came into operation from October 16, 2004.[1]
