Kōnandai Station (港南台駅, Kōnandai-eki) is a railway station operated by JR East's Negishi Line located in Kōnan-ku, Yokohama, Japan. It is 16.0 kilometers from the terminus of the Negishi Line at Yokohama Station and 75.1 kilometers from the terminus of the Keihin-Tōhoku Line at Ōmiya Station.

History[edit]

The area around Kōnandai Station was controlled by the American military in the post-war era. The property was returned to the Japanese government by 1965 and developed into a housing district. The Japan National Railways (JNR) Keihin-Tōhoku Line was extended from its former terminus at Yōkōdai Station through to Ōfuna Station in 1973, and Kōnandai Station was opened on 9 April 1973. The station came under the management of JR East on April 1, 1987 after the privatization of the JNR.
