Futako-Shinchi Station (二子新地駅?, Futako-Shinchi-eki) is a railway station operated by Tokyu Corporation's Tōkyū Den-en-toshi Line located in the northern part of Takatsu-ku, Kawasaki, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. It is 10.1 kilometers from the terminus of the Tōkyū Den-en-toshi Line at Shibuya Station.

History[edit]

Futako-Shinchi Station was opened on July 15, 1927 as the Futago stop on the Tamagawa Electric Railway (玉川電気鉄道?, Tamagawa Denki Tetsudo). It was renamed to Futago-Jizen in 1935. On July 1, 1943 it became part of the Ōimachi Line and was rebuilt to a train station. The station was rebuilt on March 18, 1966 as an elevated station along with the construction of Futako Bridge (二子橋梁). The station was renamed to its present name on December 16, 1977. From 2005 - 2008 the platforms were rebuilt for expansion of Tōkyū Ōimachi Line.
