History

The rail line originally opened on February 11, 1911, as the Nagazumi-cho Station; at the time, it was operated by the Mino Electric Railroad, Co. On December 26, 1914, Shin-Gifu Station (the present-day station) on the Mino Electric Railroad's Kasamatsu Line (present day Nagoya Line) began operations. Service was again expanded on December 28, 1928 when the Kakamigahara Railroad (present day Kakamigahara Line) began operating from the Nagazumi-cho Station.
