History[edit]

Ōkawa Station opened on 10 March 1926, as a freight-handling station on the privately held Tsurumi Rinko Railway (鶴見臨港鉄道, Tsurumi Rinko Tetsudo).[1] Passenger services started on October 28, 1930.[1] The line was nationalized on July 1, 1943, and was later absorbed into the Japanese National Railways (JNR) network.[1] The station has been unattended since March 1, 1971.[citation needed] With the privatization of JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of JR East.[1]
