History[edit]

Higashi Totsuka Station opened as a station on the Japanese National Railways (JNR) on October 1, 1980, after local residents had petitioned the government for a railway station for over a half century. The opening coincided with the separation of the tracks for the Tōkaidō Main Line and Yokosuka Line into two separate sets of tracks from Yokohama through Ofuna Station.

Surrounding area[edit]

The Aurora Mall, in front of the train station, houses Daiei and Seibu stores.
