Change of Kintetsu lines near Yokkaichi in 1956

The station was originally opened as Suwa Station (諏訪駅, Suwa-eki) and was a junction of the three lines which Kintetsu-Yokkaichi Station presently serves (the two branch lines were operated by Mie Transport). In 1956 when Kinki Nippon Railway (Kintetsu) rerouted the Nagoya Line and closed its station by JNR's Yokkaichi Station, Suwa Station of Kintetsu and Mie Transport was moved and renamed as Kinki Nippon Yokkaichi Station. The station was again renamed in 1970 to the present name.
