History[edit]

Miurakaigan Station opened on July 7, 1966, as the southern terminus of the Kurihama Line.[1] In April 1975, the Kurihama Line was extended one station beyond Miurakaigan to the present terminus at Misakiguchi Station.[1]

In October 2016, an experimental platform edge door system was installed for evaluation purposes on platform 1 for a period of approximately one year. The "Dokodemo Door" (どこでもドア?) platform edge door system developed by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Transportation Equipment Engineering & Service is designed to handle trains with two, three or four doors per car, and the temporary installation is just one car length long.[2]

In fiscal 2011, the station was used by an average of 11,735 passengers daily.[1]
