History[edit]

Kogawara Station was opened on August 1, 1944 as Kogawara Signal Stop (小川原信号場?, Kogawara shingōjō) on the Tōhoku Main Line. It was elevated to the status of a full station on June 10, 1953. The station has been unattended since August 1971. With the privatization of the Japan National Railways on April 1, 1987, it came under the operational control of East Japan Railway Company (JR East).

The section of the Tōhoku Main Line including this station was transferred to Aoimori Railway on December 4, 2010.
