History[edit]

The station platforms in 2000, before remodeling

Takatsu Station opened on July 15, 1927, as a station on the Tamagawa Electric Railway (玉川電気鉄道 Tamagawa Denski Tetsudo?). It became a station on the Ōimachi Line from July 1, 1943. In 1966, the station was rebuilt as an elevated station with the opening of the Tokyu Den-en-toshi Line. Between 2007 and 2009, the platforms were rebuilt for the expansion of Ōimachi Line.
