History[edit]

The station was opened on 15 December 1916 as an intermediate station along a stretch of track laid down by the privately-run Anan Railway (阿南鉄道, Anan Tetsudo) from Chūden to Hanoura and Furushō (now closed). On 1 July 1936, the Anan Railway was nationalized and became part of the Mugi Line, operated by Japanese Government Railways (JGR). On 1 April 1987, with the privatization of Japanese National Railways (JNR), the successor of JGR, JR Shikoku took over control of the station.[7][8]

On 1 February 2012, Komatsushima City set up a tourist information centre on the premises of the station.[9]
