History[edit]

Keikyū Kurihama Station opened on December 1, 1942 as the southern terminal station for the Tokyu Shōnan Line. At that time, it was named simply Kurihama Station (久里浜駅 Kurihama-eki?), however, to avoid confusion with the neighboring government-run Kurihama Station, it was renamed Shōnan-Kurihama Station (湘南久里浜駅 Shōnan-Kurihama-eki?) on April 1, 1944. It became a station on the Keihin Electric Express Railway from 1948. The station was renamed Keihin Kurihama Station (京浜久里浜駅 Keihin Kurihama-eki?), on November 1, 1963. A new station building was completed in April 1987, and the station renamed to its present name on June 1, 1987.
