Station history[edit]

Atsugi Station was opened on May 12, 1926 as the terminus of Jinchū Railroad (神中鉄道?), now Sagami Railway). Despite being located in neighboring Ebina, the station was named “Atsugi” to fulfill a pledge by the railway management to build a railroad “to Atsugi”. The Sotetsu Railway (currently the JR Sagami Line) linked to the station on July 15, 1926. On April 1, 1927, the Odakyu Electric Railway built the adjacent Kawaharaguchi Station (河原口駅?). With the completion of Ebina Station on the Jinchū Railroad on November 25, 1941, operations to Atsugi were discontinued. Atsugi Station of newly nationalized Sagami Line and Kawaharaguchi Station were joined into the same station building on June 1, 1944. A new station building was opened on July 31, 1971.

Surrounding area[edit]

The nearest railway station from US Naval Air Facility Atsugi is Sagami-Ōtsuka Station, not Atsugi Station.
