History[edit]

Kenyoshi Station was opened on July 1, 1897, as a station of the Nippon Railway; when the Nippon Railway was nationalized on November 1, 1906, it became a station on the Tōhoku Main Line of the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) and later the Japanese National Railways (JNR). Freight operations were discontinued from November 1982; the station has been managed from Hachinohe Station since February 1983. With the privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987, it came under the operational control of JR East; the station came under the control of the Aoimori Railway Line on December 1, 2002.
