Nirasaki Station was opened on December 15, 1903 on the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) Chūō Main Line when the line was extended from Kōfu. The track was further extended from this station to Fujimi on December 21, 1904. The JGR became the JNR (Japanese National Railways) after the end of World War II. Scheduled freight services were discontinued from February 1972. With the dissolution and privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of the East Japan Railway Company. Automated turnstiles using the Suica IC Card system came into operation from October 16, 2004.
