History

The station was opened on October 1, 1907 as Hōzan Station (鳳山停車場), as part of the first phase of what later became the TRA Pingtung Line. In 1935, a brick station building opened and replaced the original wooden station building, and was expanded twice in 1964 and 1990. The station tracks were electrified between May 3, 1995 (from Kaohsiung to Fengshan) and July 10, 1996 (from Fengshan to Pingtung). Until 1998, this station was also served by the South-North Line (zh:南北平行預備線) of Taiwan Sugar Railways.

A temporary, underground station building was opened on June 22, 2014 at the site of the former Taiwan Sugar Railways platforms as part of the underground relocation of tracks of the southern section of the Taiwan Trunk Line. At the same time, the 1935 ground-level station building was demolished.
