History

Kimitsu Station opened on January 15, 1915 as Susai Station (周西駅?) on the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) Kisarazu Line. On May 24, 1919, the line's name changed to the Hōjō Line, and on April 15, 1929 to the Bōsō Line and on April 1, 1933 to the Bōsōnishi Line. It became part of the Japan National Railways (JNR) after World War II. The station was renamed to its present name on April 1, 1956, and the line was renamed the Uchibō Line from July 15, 1972. Kimitsu Station was absorbed into the JR East network upon the privatization of the Japan National Railways (JNR) on April 1, 1987.[1]
