History[edit]

Keikyū Kawasaki was opened on September 1, 1902 as Kawasaki Station (川崎駅 Kawasaki-eki?) as a station on the privately held Keihin Electric Railway. It was renamed Keihin Kawasaki Station (京浜川崎駅 Keihin Kawasaki-eki?) on November 1, 1925 to avoid confusion with the nearby JGR Kawasaki Station. The tracks were elevated in 1966, and a new station building was completed. The station was renamed to its present name on June 1, 1987.

Surrounding area[edit]

To the west of the station is the Yodobashi Camera store. The station is also surrounded by many shopping complexes, restaurants, and a Toho movie theater. JR Kawasaki Station is located to the southwest of the station.
