Shin-Koiwa Station opened on 10 July 1928.[1]


JR East is considering installing platform-edge doors due to the large number of passenger accidents and suicides occurring at this station.[2] Between July 2011 and June 2013, 13 incidents occurred in which passengers were hit by trains at this station.[2] Katsushika Ward made an official request to JR East to install platform-edge doors at the station in July 2012.[2]

On 27 June 2013, at around 14:40, a man in his thirties jumped in front of a 12-car Narita Express Yokohama to Narita Airport service passing non-stop through the station. The man died and his body hit a woman standing on the platform, injuring her.[2]
