HistoryEdit

The station opened on 1 April 1982, initially named Daigakumae Station (大学前駅).[5]

Electric services commenced from 1 June 2012, following electrification of the line between Sapporo and this station.[3]

On December 2018, it was announced that the station would become the terminus station of the Sasshō Line, due to the closure of the non-electrified section of the line. Finally, that section was closed in 17th April 2020. [6]
