Kamakurakōkōmae Station (鎌倉高校前駅 Kamakurakōkōmae-eki) is a railway station on the Enoshima Electric Railway (Enoden) located in Kamakura, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. It is 4.7 kilometers from the terminus of the Enoden at Fujisawa Station. Though small in size, it is known for its scenic beauty, as it commands an open view of the Pacific Ocean and Mount Fuji from the station platform.
Kamakurakōkōmae Station was opened on June 20, 1903 as Hisaka Station (日坂駅 Hisaka-eki). It was renamed to its present name on August 20, 1953. In 1997, it was selected as one of the "100 Top Stations in the Kantō Region" (関東の駅百選 Kantō no eki 100 sen) by a selection committee commissioned by the Japanese Ministry of Transportation.
Kamakurakōkōmae Station has a single side platform serving one track for bi-directional traffic. The station is unattended.
