History[edit]

Ebina Station was opened on November 25, 1941 as the terminal station of the Jinchū Railroad (神中鉄道?), now Sagami Railway). The Odakyu Line Ebina-Kokubun Station (海老名国分駅?), which had been in operation since 1927, was shifted 400 meters on April 1, 1943, for joint operation of Ebina Station. From December 1971, Ebina became one of the chief rail yards of the Odakyu line. On December 21, 1973, a new station was opened, located approximately 400 meters from the old station in the direction of Odawara. From March 21, 1987, the Sagami Line began operations to Ebina, less than a month before the dissolution and privatization of the Japanese National Railways and formation of the East Japan Railway Company.
