Freight operations were discontinued on 1 October 1962. The station building was enlarged in January 1979, with the construction of the south exit. A new station building was completed in August 1986.[ citation needed ] The station became part of the JR East network upon privatization of the Japan National Railways (JNR) on 1 April 1987.
