History[edit]

Hatchōnawate Station opened on December 25, 1916, as a station on the Keihin Electric Railway. The Nambu Line connected to the station on March 25, 1930 initially for freight operations, and with passenger operations from April 10 of the same year. The Nambu line was nationalized on April 1, 1944 and freight operations abolished the same year. It later became part of the Japanese National Railways (JNR) system. The level crossing at the station was replaced by a footbridge on October 28, 1974. Along with privatization and division of JNR, JR East assumed operations of the Nambu Branch Line from April 1, 1987. The station building was rebuilt in 1989.
