Miyamae Station opened on March 27, 1930 as Gekūmae Station (外宮前駅 Gekūmae-eki?) on the Sangu Express Electric Railway. On March 15, 1941, the line 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] The station was renamed to its present name in March 1933.[1] A new station building was completed in March 1997.
