Overview Tobu Railway started to operate between Kita-Senju and Kuki in August 1899. In April 1902, the section between Kita-Senju and Azumabashi (current Tokyo Skytree) was begun its operation. Horikiri Station was opened at this time to facilitate cherry-blossom viewers who visited Horikiri Iris Garden. The Arakawa drainage channel (current the Arakawa) was excavated in the wake of the flood in 1910, and when Tobu Skytree Line was moved to the south side of the drainage channel embankment, Horikiri Station was also moved to the current place and opened on October 1, 1924. It is the nearest station of Arakawa riverbed that appeared in the popular TV drama; Mr. Kinpachi in Class 3B and has a nostalgic appearance. Near the station, you can also see Tokyo Future University, which was opened on the site of the former Adachi Daini Junior High School.
