HistoryEdit

Minami-Nagareyama Station opened on 1 April 1973.[2]

The Tsukuba Express station opened on 24 August 2005, coinciding with the opening of the line.

The Tsukuba Express platforms are scheduled to be lengthened by 40 m in either direction by autumn 2012 to allow the train stopping positions to be offset, thus reducing platform crowding during peak periods.[1]

In fiscal 2019, the JR East portion of the station was used by an average of 35,517 passengers daily (boarding passengers only).[3] The Tsukuba Express portion of the station was used by 37,560 passengers during the same period.[4]
