History[edit]

Namerikawa Station was opened on 24 March 1906, and was nationalised in 1908, becoming part of the Japanese Government Railways network, and subsequently the Japanese National Railways (JNR). The Toyama Chihō Railway portion of the station opened on 25 June 1913.

From 14 March 2015, with the opening of the Hokuriku Shinkansen extension from Nagano to Kanazawa, local passenger operations over sections of the former Hokuriku Main Line running roughly parallel to the new shinkansen line were reassigned to different third-sector railway operating companies.[1] From this date, Namerikawa Station was transferred to the ownership of the third-sector operating company Ainokaze Toyama Railway.
