History[edit]

Kokudō Station was opened on October 28, 1930 as a station on the privately held Tsurumi Rinkō Railway (鶴見臨港鉄道 Tsurumi Rinkō Tetsudō?) for passenger operations only. The Tsurumi Rinkō line was nationalized on July 1, 1943 at which time the stop was elevated into status to that of a full station. The station was later absorbed into the Japan National Railways (JNR) network. In 1949, the station was used as a location setting for the Akira Kurosawa movie Stray Dog. The station has been unstaffed since March 1, 1971. Upon the privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987 the station has been operated by JR East.
