The station opened as Nishi-Mukōmachi Station on November 1, 1928, the day the Shinkeihan Line (present-day Hankyu Kyoto Main Line) was extended from Takatsuki-machi to Kyoto Saiin. On October 1, 1972 when the town of Mukō (Mukō-machi in Japanese) became a city (Mukō-shi in Japanese), the station name was changed to the current one.
In 1978 when the underground passage of the station was constructed, an archaeological excavation at the station found some ruins of Nagaoka-kyō, the capital city of Japan from 784 to 794, and earlier period.
In fiscal 2014 (April 2014 to March 2015), about 2,254,000 passengers started travel from this station annually. For historical data, see the table below.
