The station, which is unstaffed, consists of two side platforms serving two tracks on a side hill cutting. From the main road (National Route 32, a flight of steps leads up to a small building which serves as a waiting room.

The station opened on 28 November 1935 when the then Kōchi Line was extended northwards from Toyonaga to Minawa and the line was renamed the Dosan Line. At this time the station was named Nishiu Station (西宇駅) and was operated by Japanese Government Railways, later becoming Japanese National Railways (JNR). On 1 October 1950, the station was renamed Koboke Station.

With the privatization of JNR on 1 April 1987, control of the station passed to JR Shikoku.[4][5]
