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.
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.
