History

Shin Nittetu-mae Station was opened on February 18, 1912 as Kake Station (加家駅, Kake-eki) on the Aichi Electric Railway Company. The Aichi Electric Railway became part of the Meitetsu group on August 1, 1935; however, the station was closed in 1944. On August 17, 1964, the station was reopened as Tōkaiseitetsu-mae Station (東海製鉄前駅, Tōkaiseitetsu-mae eki) after the nearby Tōkai Steel plant. The station named changed to Fujiseitetsu-mae Station (富士製鉄前駅, Fujiseitetsu-mae eki) when Tōkai was absorbed into Fuji Steel on August 1, 1967, and then to its present name on March 31, 1970 when Fuji co-founded Nippon Steel. The station has been unattended since March 2002. In January 2005, the Tranpass system of magnetic fare cards with automatic turnstiles was implemented.
