History[edit]

Sakakibara-Onsenguchi Station opened on November 19, 1930 as Sada Station (佐田駅 Sada-eki?) on the Sangu Express Electric Railway. After merging with Osaka Electric Kido on March 15, 1941, the line became the Kansai Express Railway's Osaka Line. [2] This line was merged with the Nankai Electric Railway on June 1, 1944 to form Kintetsu.[2] The station name was changed to its present name on March 1, 1965. On December 18, 1973, due to failure of an ATS system, a runaway train derailed in the Aoyama Tunnel near this station, with 25 fatalities.
