History

The station opened on 17 October 1895. [1]

During the bombing of Osaka on August 14, 1945, a one-ton bomb directly struck the Katamachi Line platform and killed 700 to 800 evacuees. Kyobashi was one of the last sites to be bombed in Japan during World War II, followed only by the bombing of Akita, later the same day. A memorial was erected on the site in 1947, and anniversary services have been held at the station every year since 1955.[ citation needed ]

With the privatization of Japanese National Railways (JNR) on 1 April 1987, the station came under the control of JR West. [1]

The JR Tozai Line opened in 1997, at which point Kyobashi became a terminal for both the Tozai Line and Katamachi Line.[ citation needed ]
