History[edit]

The station opened on 28 August 1927.[1]

Surrounding area[edit]

The station is situated in Den-en-chōfu, within the Ōta ward of suburban Tokyo. This was one of the original garden suburbs of Tokyo, running along the Tama River. The design of the town was heavily influenced by Sir Ebenezer Howard's Garden Cities of To-morrow (London 1898/1902). The original 1920s station building was torn down in the late 1980s to make way for the new modern station building. In a nod to its past and in order to retain its unique identity, a copy of the original building was constructed on elevated ground and now acts as an entranceway to the plaza in front of the subway station entrance.
