History[edit]

Momozono Station opened on May 18, 1930 as a station on the Sangu Express Electric Railway's Tsu Line. The Tsu Line was renamed the Nagoya Line on December 7, 1938. On March 15, 1941, the Sangu Express Electric Railway merged with Osaka Electric Railway to become a station on Kansai Express Railway's Nagoya Line. [2] This line in turn was merged with the Nankai Electric Railway on June 1, 1944 to form Kintetsu.[2] The station has been unattended since March 1, 2001.
