History[edit]

Keikyū Tomioka Station was opened on July 10, 1930 as Shōnan Tomioka Station (湘南富岡駅 Shōnan Tomioka-eki?) on the Shōnan Electric Railway, which merged with the Keihin Electric Railway on November 1, 1941. The station closed on January 10, 1947, and reopened on March 1, 1947 exclusively for the use by American occupation forces in Japan. Ordinary Japanese citizens were permitted to use the station again in late 1948. The station was relocated to its present address on December 1, 1955 and renamed Keihin Tomioka Station (京浜富岡駅 Keihin Tomioka-eki?) on November 1, 1963. It assumed its present name on June 1, 1987.
