History[edit]

Shimagahara Station was opened on November 11, 1897 with the extension of the Kansai Railway from Iga-Ueno Station to Kamo Station. The Kansai Railway was nationalized on October 1, 1907, becoming part of the Imperial Government Railways (IGR), which became Japan National Railways (JNR) after World War II. Freight operations were discontinued from August 1, 1970. With the privatization of JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of JR-West.
