History[edit]

Nakayama Station opened on 23 September 1908.[2] A new station building was completed in 1985.[citation needed] With the privatization of JNR on 1 April 1987, the station came under the operational control of JR East. It became an interchange station with the Green Line on 30 March 2008.[3]

On 20 January 2006, a 60-year-old man was killed by a train at the station after jumping from the platform onto the tracks to commit suicide.[4]

On 1 October 2013, a 40-year-old woman, Natsue Murata (村田 奈津恵?), was hit and killed by a train while trying to assist a 74-year-old-man who was spotted lying on the level crossing immediately to the east of the station.[5] The man survived with injuries.[5] On 4 October, the Government announced that it would award the Medal with Red Ribbon (紅綬褒章?) to Murata posthumously for demonstrating extraordinary courage in saving another person's life.[6]
