History[edit]

The station was the terminal of the line for two years between 1931 and 1933. The Jinchū Railway originating at Atsugi Station reached Nishi-Yokohama Station and was connected with the Tōkaidō Main Line (via the freight branch to Hodogaya Station) in 1929. The railway then extended the line toward Yokohama Station in two phases: first to Hiranumabashi Station on October 25, 1931 and then to the permanent terminal in Yokohama on December 27, 1933.[1]

The track between Nishi-Yokohama and Hiranumabashi was originally a siding of the Tōkaidō Main Line and was leased to the Jinchū Railway.[2]
