In October 2016, an experimental platform edge door system was installed for evaluation purposes on platform 1 for a period of approximately one year. The "Dokodemo Door" (どこでもドア) platform edge door system developed by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Transportation Equipment Engineering & Service is designed to handle trains with two, three or four doors per car, and the temporary installation is just one car length long.
In fiscal 2011, the station was used by an average of 11,735 passengers daily.
