HistoryEdit

Shimōsa-Manzaki Station opened on August 10, 1901 as a station of the Narita Railway Company for both freight and passenger operations. On September 1, 1920, the Narita Railway was nationalised, becoming part of the Japanese Government Railway (JGR). After World War II, the JGR became the Japanese National Railways (JNR). Scheduled freight operations were suspended from October 1, 1961.[citation needed] The station was absorbed into the JR East network upon the privatization of JNR on April 1, 1987. The station building was repaired and modernized from 2006-2007.[citation needed]
