History[edit]

Matsugasaki Station opened on May 18, 1930 as Sangu-Matsue Station (参急松江駅 Sangu-Matsue-eki?) on the Sangu Express Electric Railway. On November 3, 1937 the station was rebuilt on a new location 300-meters closer towards Ise-Nakagawa Station, and renamed to its present name. On March 15, 1941, the Sangu Express Electric Railway merged with Osaka Electric Railway to become a station on Kansai Express Railway's Yamada Line. [2] This line in turn was merged with the Nankai Electric Railway on June 1, 1944 to form Kintetsu.[2]
