Negishi Station (根岸駅 Negishi-eki?) is a railway station operated by JR East's Negishi Line located in Isogo-ku, Yokohama, Japan. It is 7.1 kilometers from the terminus of the Negishi Line at Yokohama Station and 66.2 kilometers from the terminus of the Keihin-Tōhoku Line at Ōmiya Station. The station is also a freight terminal on the Japan Freight Railway Company, as well as the terminus for the all-freight Honmoku Line of the Kanagawa Rinkai Railway.

History[edit]

Negishi Station was opened on May 19, 1964, as a station on the Japan National Railways (JNR) for both passenger and freight services. The Kanagawa Rinkai Railway's Honmoku Line, also for freight-only operations, began operations from Neishi on October 1, 1969. The station was absorbed into the JR East network upon the privatization of the Japan National Railways (JNR) in 1987.
