History[edit]

Minami-sakurai Station opened on 9 December 1930[1] as the Naganuma Temporary Stop (永沼臨時停留所?, Naganuma Rinji Teiryujo). On 1 August 1932 it was relocated 400 meters towards Kashiwa and elevated in status to a full station with its present name. On 6 November 1943, a new station named Yonejima Station (米島駅 Yonejima eki?) was established 800 meters in the direction of Kashiwa for freight operations. This station ceased operations on 30 September 1945, and was abolished on 23 December 1956, and Minami-sakurai Station was relocated to its location. From 17 March 2012, station numbering was introduced on the Tobu Noda Line, with Minami-sakurai Station becoming "TD-12".[2]

Passenger statistics[edit]

In fiscal 2014, the station was used by an average of 14,793 passengers daily.[3]
