Musashi-Shinjō Station (武蔵新城駅 Musashi-Shinjō-eki?) is a railway station operated by JR East's Nambu Line located in Nakahara-ku, Kawasaki, Japan. It is 10.5 kilometers from the terminus of the Nambu Line at Kawasaki Station.

History[edit]

Musashi-Shinjō Station opened as Musashi-Shinjō Stop (武蔵新城停車場 Musashi-Shinjō-Teishajo?) on the Nambu Railway on August 11, 1927. The stop was raised in status to that of a full station on April 1, 1944 with the nationalization of Nambu Railway, into the Japanese Government Railway (JGR) Nambu Line system. The JGR became the Japan National Railways (JNR) from 1946. Along with privatization and division of JNR, JR East started operating the station on April 1, 1987. The tracks were elevated and the station rebuilt in 1990.
