The Tōkaidō Main Line station opened on July 1, 1889, when the railway between Sekigahara Station and Baba Station (now Zeze Station) began operation.[1] The Ohmi Railway opened on June 11, 1898.[2]

LayoutEdit

The JR Station has two platforms serving two tracks. Both platforms are connected to the ticket gate on the bridge over the tracks. The east end of the bridge, on the ground, is the Ohmi Railway station.[3]
