Kashimada Station (鹿島田駅 Kashimada-eki?) is a railway station operated by JR East's Nambu Line located in Saiwai Ward of Kawasaki, Kanagawa, Japan. It is 4.1 kilometers from the terminus of the Nambu Line at Kawasaki Station.

History[edit]

Kashimada Station opened as Kashimada Stop (鹿島田停留場 Kashimada-Teiryūjō?) on the Nambu Railway on March 9, 1927. 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 Railway (JGR) system, which became part of the Japan National Railways (JNR) from 1946. Freight operations were discontinued in 1973. Along with privatization and division of JNR, JR East started operating the station on April 1, 1987.
