History[edit]

Nishi-Yokohama Station was opened on February 14, 1929 and was the terminal of the Jinchū Railway until the opening of Hiranumabashi Station in 1931. The station was primarily a freight terminal connecting the Sotetsu Line with the national railway's freight terminal at Hodogaya Station via a short branch line. The freight service on the branch was discontinued on September 30, 1979.[1] On February 14, 1993 an unexploded bomb from World War II was discovered during construction work near the station. The current station building dates from June 26, 2005.
