History[edit]

Sugito Station in the early 20th century

The station opened on 27 August 1899 as Sugito Station (杉戸駅?).[2] It was renamed on 16 March 1981[2] after the Tōbu Dōbutsu Kōen (東武動物公園?) zoo and amusement park complex run by Tobu, which is a ten-minute walk from the station. From 17 March 2012, station numbering was introduced on all Tobu lines, with Tōbu-Dōbutsu-Kōen Station becoming "TS-30".[3]
