History

The Daiyūzan Line was originally built to carry pilgrims from Odawara city to the Sōtō Zen Buddhist temple of Saijō-ji (最乗寺), more popularly known by its mountain name of "Daiyūzan". As originally planned, the line was to have extended to Yamakita, where it would have connected to the Gotemba Line. Construction began on June 2, 1922. The first phase of construction, connecting Kari-Odawara Station (仮小田原駅) with Daiyūzan Station was completed on October 15, 1925. The terminal station was moved from Kari-Odawara to Shin-Odawara Station on April 10, 1927 and finally to Odawara Station on June 16, 1935, at which time both Kari-Odawara and Shin-Odawara stations were closed. The Daiyūzan Line was merged with the Sunzu Line on August 23, 1941, and became part of the Izuhakone Railway in June 1957. From November 25, 1976, the power rating on the line was raised from 600 Volts to 1500 Volts. Automatic wicket gates were installed on all stations by 2003 and were upgraded to accept both the Suica and PASMO IC Card systems by 2007.
