History[edit]

Shimo-Soga Station opened on May 15, 1922.[1] The station building was destroyed by the 1923 Great Kanto earthquake.[2] With the opening of the Tanna Tunnel in 1934, it became a station on the Gotemba line. On August 21, 1962 regular freight services were discontinued, but were resumed again on October 1, 1967. Since the privatization of the Japanese National Railways on April 1, 1987, the station has been for passengers only.[1]
