Station history[edit]

It was elevated to a full station under its present name on August 1, 1948. Regularly scheduled freight services were discontinued in 1972, and parcel services by 1984. With the dissolution and privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of the Central Japan Railway Company.
