History[edit]

The old station sign uncovered in August 2015

The station opened on 16 July 1932. Following the privatization of Japanese National Railways (JNR) on 1 April 1987, the station came under the control of JR West.

In August 2015, an old station sign painted directly on the wall and dating from the 1930s or 1940s was uncovered during renovation work, and this was subsequently preserved under a clear plastic sheet.[1][2]
