History

The former station building in December 2005

The station opened on 16 December 1912. [2] With the privatization of JNR on 1 April 1987, the station came under the control of JR West. [2]

From 14 March 2015, with the opening of the Hokuriku Shinkansen extension from Nagano to Kanazawa, local passenger operations over sections of the Shinetsu Main Line and Hokuriku Main Line running roughly parallel to the new shinkansen line were reassigned to third-sector railway operating companies. [3] From this date, operations of former Hokuriku Main Line services were transferred to the ownership of the third-sector operating company Echigo Tokimeki Railway.

Passenger statistics

In fiscal 2016, the station was used by an average of 1205 passengers daily (boarding passengers only). [4]
