History[edit]

Zenkōji Station was opened on March 30, 1928 as a signal stop on the Fuji-Minobu Line. It was elevated to a full station when operations were consigned to the government on October 1, 1938. The line came under control of the Japanese Government Railways on May 1, 1941. The JGR became the JNR (Japan National Railway) after World War II. All freight operations were discontinued on November 1, 1960. The station has been unattended since April 10 1983. Along with the division and privatization of JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of the Central Japan Railway Company.
