History

Kitano-Masuzuka Station was opened on October 1, 1970, as a freight station on the Japanese National Railways (JNR), primarily to support the operations of nearby factories of Toyota Motors and its affiliated companies. Scheduled passenger operations began from April 26, 1976. Freight operations were discontinued from January 1, 1985. With the privatization of JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of JR Central. The station was transferred to the third sector Aichi Loop Railway Company on January 31, 1988. The station was expanded with the addition of another track on December 23, 2001, in preparation for the 2005 Aichi World Exposition.
