History[edit]

The station opened on May 24, 1919, as Awa-Hōjō Station (安房北条駅?) on what was then called the Hōjō Line. The Hōjō Line was merged with the Bōsō Line in 1927. The station was renamed to its current name on March 1, 1946. Scheduled freight operations were suspended from November 15, 1982.[citation needed] The station was absorbed into the JR East network upon the privatization of the Japanese National Railways (JNR) on April 1, 1987. A new station building was completed in March 1999.[citation needed]
