History

At the time of opening, the journey time from Ikebukuro was approximately 1 hour 40 minutes (compared to 45 minutes by express in 2008).cite journal | last = Yamamoto | first = Tomoyuki | authorlink = | coauthors = | title = 東武東上線の神話時代(1)| journal = Japan Railfan Magazine| volume = 48| issue = 570| pages = 126-131| publisher = | location = | date = October 2008] The station was renamed Sakado on 1 September 1976 when Sakado became a city.
