Nobiru Station opened on April 10, 1928 as a station on the Miyagi Electric Railway. On October 23, 1931, it was renamed Tōhoku Suma Station (東北須磨駅). The Miyagi Electric Railway was nationalized on May 1, 1944, and the station name reverted to its present name. The station was absorbed into the JR East network upon the privatization of JNR on April 1, 1987.

The station was closed from March 11, 2011, due to damage to the line associated with the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, and services were replaced by provisional bus services. The station reopened on May 30, 2015, on a higher ground where the former community around the station would be reconstructed.[1][2] Due to the relocation, the distance from Aoba-Dōri was changed from 34.0 kilometers to 33.4 kilometers.[3]

Passenger statistics[edit]

In fiscal 2018, the station was used by an average of 197 passengers daily (boarding passengers only).[4]
