The area near the station in April 1988

Kanazawa-hakkei Station was opened on April 1, 1930 as a station on the Shonan Electric Railway, which merged with the Keihin Electric Railway in 1941. The station was rebuilt in July 1987.[citation needed]

The name Kanazawa Hakkei (lit. Eight Views of Kanazawa) is taken from the name of a series of Ukiyo-e woodblock prints, of eight places in the area, which were made between 1835 and 1836, by Ando Hiroshige.

Since 2010, all Limited Express (Kaitoku) trains stop at this station.
