History[edit]

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 Rapid Limited Express (Kaitoku) trains now stop at this station.
