Kurihama Station opened on 1 April 1944 as a station on the Japanese Government Railways (JGR), the pre-war predecessor to the Japanese National Railways (JNR).[2] Freight operations were discontinued from October 1, 1974. The station came under the management of JR East upon the privatization of JNR on April 1, 1987. The station was served by Shōnan-Shinjuku Line trains when the new service started in December 2001, but services as far as Kurihama were discontinued from October 2004.
