History

Chigasaki Station was opened on June 15, 1898 for both passenger and freight service as part of the section of the Japan National Railway (JNR) Tōkaidō Main Line connecting Yokohama with Kōzu. The adjacent Sagami Line station (then operated by the Sagami Railway opened on September 28, 1921. It was nationalized on June 1, 1944, becoming part of the Japan National Railways. Scheduled freight services were discontinued from 1984, and small parcel services from 1985. With the dissolution and privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the operational control of the East Japan Railway Company. The north exit bus terminal was greatly expanded in 1996 and 1998. Automated turnstiles using the Suica IC Card system came into operation on November 18, 2001. The station building was reconstructed in 2006 to include a multi-story department store.
