The Keikyū Kurihama Line (京急久里浜線 Keikyū Kurihamasen?) is a commuter rail line operated by Keikyu in Japan. Keikyū Main Line trains from Oshiage and Shinagawa in Tokyo connect to the Miura Peninsula on the Keikyū Kurihama Line.

History[edit]

The Horinouchi - Keikyū Kurihama section opened in 1942/43 as an electrified line. CTC signalling was commissioned in 1954, and the line was duplicated by 1959.

The line was extended as a dual track section to Keikyū Nagasawa in 1966, and as a single track section to Misakiguchi in 1975. The Keikyū Nagasawa - Tsukuihama section was duplicated in 1980.

A proposed extension to Aburatsubo has been put on hold indefinitely.
