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

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.[2][3]
