Motosumiyoshi Station (元住吉駅 Motosumiyoshi-eki?) is a railway station on the Tokyu Corporation's Tōyoko Line in Nakahara Ward, Kawasaki, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. It is 12.1 kilometers from the terminus of the Tōyoko Line at Shibuya Station and 10.4 kilometers from the terminus of the Meguro Line at Meguro Station.


Motosumiyoshi Station opened as one of the original Tōyoko Line stations on February 14, 1926. The station was rebuilt as an underground station (ticket gates were underground and platforms were on the ground) in 1963, but was totally reconstructed in 2006 as an elevated above-ground station.

On February 15, 2014, at around 12:30 a.m., two Tōyoko Line trains collided on the Yokohama-bound track at the station. 19 passengers were lightly injured in the accident. The cause of the accident was supposedly the heavy snow that resulted in lack of braking force.[1]
