History[edit]

Kohoku Station was opened on April 1, 1901 as a station on the Narita Railway Company. On September 1, 1920, the Narita Railway was nationalised, becoming part of the Japanese Government Railways (JGR). After World War II, the JGR became the Japanese National Railways (JNR). Scheduled freight operations were suspended from November 1, 1962. The station was absorbed into the JR East network upon the privatization of the Japanese National Railways on April 1, 1987. The station building was extensively rebuilt and modernized in 2007.
