History[edit]

The JR East station opened on 11 April 1904.[1] The Tokyu station opened on 6 October 1922 on the Ikegami Line, and services on Tamagawa Line began on 1 November 1923.[2]

Future plans[edit]

Plans exist to extend the Tokyu Tamagawa Line from Kamata eastward by approximately 800 m to Keikyu Kamata Station on the Keikyu Main Line and Keikyu Airport Line. This would provide an interchange between the lines, improving accessibility to Tokyo's Haneda Airport ahead of the 2020 Summer Olympics.[3]
