History[edit]

The station was opened on 15 October 1904 by the private Hokkaido Railway as an intermediate station during a phase of expansion when its track from Hakodate to Neppu was extended to link up with stretches of track further north to provide through traffic from Hakodate to Otaru. At that time, its name was Makkari Station (真狩駅, Makkari-eki). On 15 December 1905, its name was changed to Kaributo Station (狩太駅, Kaributo-eki). After the Hokkaido Railway was nationalized on 1 July 1907, Japanese Government Railways (JGR) took over control of the station. On 12 October 1909 the station became part of the Hakodate Main Line. On 1 April 1968, Japanese National Railways (JNR), the successor of JGR, renamed the station to Niseko. With the privatization of JNR on 1 April 1987, control of the station passed to JR Hokkaido.[2][4]
