History[edit]

Minami-Nagareyama Station opened on 1 April 1973.[3]

The Tsukuba Express station opened on 24 August 2005, coinciding with the opening of the line.

The Tsukuba Express platforms are scheduled to be lengthened by 40 m in either direction by autumn 2012 to allow the train stopping positions to be offset, thus reducing platform crowding during peak periods.[2]
