|2||Musashino Line||for Musashi-Urawa, Shim-Matsudo, Nishi-Funabashi, Tokyo, and Kaihimmakuhari|
The station opened on 1 April 1973. With the privatization of JNR on 1 April 1987, the station came under the control of JR East.
In April 2014, work started to extend the platform by approximately 40 m (130 ft) to the east (toward Nishi-Urawa) to allow the train stopping positions to be offset by two car lengths on either side and alleviate crowding on the platform during busy periods. Costing approximately 200 million yen, work was scheduled to be completed around December 2014.
In fiscal 2019, the station was used by an average of 70,577 passengers daily (boarding passengers only), making it the third busiest station on the Musashino Line after Nishi-Funabashi and Minami-Koshigaya. The passenger figures (boarding passengers only) for previous years are as shown below.
