Yōkōdai Station (洋光台駅?, Yōkōdai-eki) is a railway station operated by JR East's Negishi Line located in Isogo-ku, Yokohama, Japan. It is 14.1 kilometers from the terminus of the Negishi Line at Yokohama Station and 58.5 kilometers from the terminus of the Keihin-Tōhoku Line at Ōmiya Station.

History[edit]

The area around Yōkōdai Station was formerly a small rural pocket within central Yokohama. It was developed into a large housing district in the early 1970s. The Japan National Railways (JNR) Keihin-Tōhoku Line was extended from its former terminus at Isogo Station, and Yōkōdai Station was opened on 17 March 1970. The line was further extended to Ōfuna Station in 1973. The station came under the management of JR East on April 1, 1987 after the privatization of the JNR.
