The station opened on September 1, 1902 as Kawasaki Station (川崎駅?) as a station on the privately owned Keihin Electric Railway.[1] It was renamed Keihin Kawasaki Station (京浜川崎駅?) on November 1, 1925 to avoid confusion with the nearby JGR Kawasaki Station. The tracks were elevated in May 1966.[1] The station was renamed Keikyu Kawasaki on June 1, 1987.[1]

In fiscal 2011, the station was used by an average of 113,635 passengers daily.[1]
