History[edit]

Ōgimachi Station was opened on July 20, 1924 as a station on the privately held Tsurumi Rinkō Railway (鶴見臨港鉄道, Tsurumi Rinkō Tetsudō) initially for freight operations only. Passenger services were started from October 28, 1930. The line was nationalized on July 1, 1943 and was absorbed into the Japanese Government Railways network. The station has been unstaffed since March 1, 1971. Upon the privatization of the Japanese National Railways (JNR) on April 1, 1987 the station has been jointly operated by JR East and Japan Freight Railway Company.
