History[edit]

Kintetsu Kanie Station opened on June 26, 1938 as Kankyu Kanie Station (関急蟹江駅?, Kankyu Kanie eki) on the Sangu Express Electric Railway. On January 1, 1940, the Sangu Express Railway and the Kansai Express Electric Railway merged and the station was renamed Sankyu Kanie Station (参急蟹江駅?, Sankyu Kanie eki). After merging with Osaka Electric Kido on March 15, 1941, the line became the Kansai Express Railway's Nagoya Line and the station reverted to its original name. [2] This line was merged with the Nankai Electric Railway on June 1, 1944 to form Kintetsu,[2] and the station name became Kinki Nippon Kanie Station (近畿日本蟹江駅?, Kinki Nippon Kanie eki). The name was shortened to its present form on March 1, 1970
