  • History

    The station opened on March 10, 1931 when private Nansatsu Railway opened the line between Kaseda and Makurazaki. The station began to serve two lines when the Ibusuki Makurazaki Line of Japanese National Railways extended from Nishi-Ei to Makurazaki on October 31, 1963.

    The operation of Nansatsu Line was suspended on June 21, 1983 due to a flood. The line was abandoned and officially closed on March 18, 1984. Only the Ibusuki-Makurazaki Line has served the station since then.

    On May 1, 2006, the station was moved approximately 100 meters towards Kagoshima. The new station has single platform and no station building.
