Torisawa Station opened on June 1, 1902, as a passenger and freight station on the Japanese National Railways (JNR) Chūō Main Line. Freight services were discontinued from April 20, 1960.[citation needed] With the dissolution and privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of the East Japan Railway Company.
