Higashi-Kitazawa Station opened with the line on April 1, 1927. Until 1966, it served freight as well as passengers.
On October 1, 2005, the express tracks through the station were taken out of service, in order to enable work to grade-separate the line and provide continuous quadruple track through Setagaya Ward. The station was moved underground on March 23, 2013, and a new station building opened on May 16, 2015.
The station currently consists of one underground island platform and two tracks. All trains are using the outer (express) tracks until the completion of the inner (local) tracks, with temporary platforms in place over the local tracks.
Until 2005, the station consisted of two side platforms and four tracks, with the inner two used by non-stop trains.
Trains serve this station 0455-0105 every day.
Only local trains stop at this station. The current off-peak service consists of 6 trains per hour to Shinjuku and 6 trains per hour to Hon-Atsugi. Typical journey times are 9 minutes to Shinjuku and 1 hour 20 minutes to Hon-Atsugi (though if passengers change at Shimo-Kitazawa to a Rapid Express, they can reach the latter in as little as 45 minutes). There are no direct services to the Chiyoda Line from this station; passengers must instead change at Yoyogi-Uehara.
