Hiyoshi Station (日吉駅 Hiyoshi-eki?) is an interchange station in Kōhoku-ku, Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan, jointly operated by Tokyu Corporation and the Yokohama Municipal Subway.

Lines[edit]

Hiyoshi Station is served by the Tōkyū Tōyoko Line and Tōkyū Meguro Line. It is also served by the Yokohama Municipal Subway Green Line. It is 13.6 kilometers from the terminus of the Toyoko Line at Shibuya Station, and 11.9 kilometers from the terminus of the Meguro Line at Meguro Station.

Station layout[edit]

The station is an elevated structure with two island platforms serving four tracks above ground. The station building is also connected to the Tokyu Store, a large upscale supermarket, and the reformed Tokyu Department Store on the second floor, which features many individually branded shops as well as a major consumer electronic shop ("Best Denki") as a tenant occupying the entire third floor. The Yokohama Subway consists of a single island platform underground.

History[edit]

Hiyoshi Station opened as one of the original Toyoko Line stations on February 14, 1926. The station was completely rebuilt in 1991 with half-submerged tracks and an elevated station building constructed above the tracks. The adjacent Tokyu Department store opened in 1995. The Yokohama Subway Green Line connected to Hiyoshi Station on March 30, 2008.

Future plans[edit]

An approximately 10 km link is scheduled to be constructed from a new station at Hazawa on the JR Freight Tokaido Line via Shin-Yokohama, enabling through services to and from the Sagami Railway Main Line via Nishiya from March 2019.[1]
