Yokosuka Station opened on June 16, 1889 as the initial terminal station on the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) spur line from Ōfuna to serve the Yokosuka Naval Arsenal and related Imperial Japanese Navy facilities at Yokosuka. This spur line was renamed the Yokosuka Line on October 12, 1909. The present station building, the third building on this site was completed in April, 1940 and the line extended past Yokosuka to Kurihama Station in 1944. Freight operations were discontinued from February 1, 1984. The station came under the management of JR East upon the privatization of the Japanese National Railways (JNR) on April 1, 1987.
