Hirama Station (平間駅 Hirama-eki?) is a railway station operated by JR East's Nambu Line located in Kawasaki Ward of Kawasaki, Kanagawa, Japan. It is 5.3 kilometers from the terminus of the Nambu Line at Kawasaki Station.

History[edit]

The stop was raised in status to that of a full station along with nationalization of Nambu Railway on April 1, 1944 into the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) system, which became part of the Japanese National Railways (JNR) from 1949. Along with privatization and division of JNR, JR East started operating the station on April 1, 1987.
