Mukaigawara Station opened as a station on the Nambu Railway on March 9, 1927. It was renamed Nihon-Denki-mae Station (日本電気前駅 Nihon-Denki-mae-eki?) on August 5, 1940. Along with nationalization of Nambu Railway, the station reverted to its original name under the Japanese Government Railway Nambu Line on April 1, 1944, and became part of the Japan National Railways (JNR) system from 1946. Freight operations were discontinued from 1973. Along with privatization and division of JNR, JR East started operating the station on April 1, 1987.
