Keikyū Kurihama Station (京急久里浜駅 Keikyū Kurihama-eki?) is a railway station operated by the Keikyū Kurihama Line located in Yokosuka, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. It is located 4.5 rail kilometers from the Horinouchi Station, and 56.8 rail kilometers from the northern terminus of the Kurihama Line at Shinagawa Station, in Tokyo. It is also located 3 minutes' walk from Kurihama Station on the Yokosuka Line.

History[edit]

Keikyū Kurihama Station opened on December 1, 1942 as the southern terminal station for the Tokyu Shōnan Line. At that time, it was named simply Kurihama Station (久里浜駅 Kurihama-eki?), however, to avoid confusion with the neighboring government-run Kurihama Station, it was renamed Shōnan-Kurihama Station (湘南久里浜駅 Shōnan-Kurihama-eki?) on April 1, 1944. It became a station on the Keihin Electric Express Railway from 1948. The station was renamed Keihin Kurihama Station (京浜久里浜駅 Keihin Kurihama-eki?), on November 1, 1963. A new station building was completed in April 1987, and the station renamed to its present name on June 1, 1987.
