The first 3700 series sets were introduced in 1991, replacing the original 3000 series trains. The first six-car sets were delivered in 2000. Sets from the 6th batch onward (set 3828 onward) had restyled front ends with the headlights located near the roof. Two eight-car sets (3808 and 3748) were leased to the Hokuso Railway becoming Hokuso 7300 series sets 7808 and 7818, supplementing the two 7300 series sets owned by the Hokuso Railway.
