History[edit]

Kushida Station opened on March 27, 1930 as a station on the Sangu Kyuko Electric Railway. On March 15, 1941, the line merged with Osaka Electric Railway to become a station on Kansai Kyuko Railway's Yamada Line. [2] This line in turn was merged with the Nankai Electric Railway on June 1, 1944 to form Kintetsu.[2] A new station building was completed in March 1992.
